Anchorage, Alaska — September 5, 2014 — Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington revoked the accreditation of 8 businesses during the second quarter of 2014 for failing to uphold BBB Standards of Accreditation. BBB’s board of directors took action on the companies between April 1 and June 30.
BBB Accreditation is a privilege and signifies that businesses are accountable, honest, responsive, transparent and ethical. Expulsion from accreditation status is unfortunate, but BBB takes the enforcement of its standards seriously. Accredited companies promise to embody integrity in all business dealings—based on the BBB Code of Business Practices—and many of the accreditation revocations were due to a failure to quickly respond to disputes in good faith.
During the same time period, BBB denied accreditation applications for 10 additional companies for not meeting standards.
Consumers turn to BBB daily for reliable online business reviews; when companies fail to uphold standards, BBB takes action to protect marketplace trust.
