SCC have asked if all councils can assist to get this information shared with residents to make them aware of changes from September 2019.
Suffolk County Council Trading Standards have recently given out our 10,000th No Cold Calling sticker, just four years after launching the campaign.
The stickers are placed on a homeowner’s front door to declare that the resident does not want uninvited traders to call at their property. The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, state that traders who approach a resident after having seen the sticker, are committing an offence.
With National Sticker Day on 13 January, it’s a timely opportunity to get a No Cold Calling sticker for yourself or someone you know. To request one, simply email us with your name and address.
