As a quality control measure to ensure PHAB Standards' criteria are always being upheld, applying businesses and individuals agree to the possibility of a visit by a 'mystery shopper' should the need arises. Applicants are also agreeing to PHAB Standard Ltd. contacting their customers, managers, accountants, manufacturers /suppliers to verify information submitted in connection with their application only. We also reserve the right to revoke the PHAB Standard given if the individual or business fails the 'mystery shopper' exercise and/ or repeated customer complaints are received about poor customer service standards. All PHAB accolades (trophies, ID cards, certificates and window stickers) remain the property of PHAB Standard Ltd and must be returned to us if the standard is revoked.
