The Fair Contract Charter - helping buyers recognise suppliers they can trust

We established the Fair Contract Charter in 2011 in response to a growing demand from industry suppliers for a clamp down on fraudulent or unscrupulous dealers.
All suppliers in our directory are fully vetted before being awarded Approved Supplier status - it is not possible to buy accreditation to the Fair Contract Charter without being assessed.

All approved contracts taken out with our approved suppliers are guaranteed by Fair Contract Associates Limited, if anything goes wrong, it is put right hassle-free, so you have complete peace of mind you are getting a fair deal, with no nasty surprises further down the line.

Protecting you from money-draining deals

Frustrated by the lack of any regulatory body for the industry Fair Contract Associates founder Chas Jordan, originally set up the service in 2011 after having witnessed decades of unscrupulous practices imposed on buyers in this mainly unregulated industry.

We have since exposed a raft of fraudulent dealings some of which have forced UK businesses and non-profits alike to the edge of bankruptcy. Chas and the team continue to work tirelessly in the fight for a fair deal for buyers and to give honest suppliers a voice and the recognition they deserve.

We are not lawyers, although both lawyers and barristers alike call on our skills and unrivalled industry knowledge to achieve fairer contract terms for all parties.
