At HICS we have different types of Affiliate Partners – Manufacturers, Distributors and Service Providers. Each HICS Affiliate Partner shares HICS’ core values of respecting, protecting and educating consumers and work alongside HICS to ensure that consumers are always being treated this way.
To reach Affiliate Partner status each Partner has undergone a strict accreditation process. The process examines each Partner’s solvency and ethos as well as reviewing their processes and procedures to ensure that they can provide consumers with fair treatment. Each Affiliate Partner also undergoes ongoing collaborative performance assessments where HICS will feedback areas of improvement to ensure that consumers are receiving a continuously improving service.
