Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008
It is a criminal offence under the above Regulations to give consumers the impression that you are a member of a trade association when you are not.
API are extremely keen to investigate and where appropriate prosecute any company who falsely promotes that it is a API member company. Trading Standards will be informed in all cases.
The API list of members is always up-to-date on our website: http://www.api-play.org/api-member-details
Companies stating that they are 'Founder members of the API' or verbally indicating they are members - does not mean they are Members! Ask to see their current 'membership certificate - double check online or call the office directly for confirmation.
