We take PCA logo abuse seriously…

For companies/individuals who are displaying the PCA logo but are not authorised to do so, their details will be passed on to Trading Standards and, in appropriate cases, legal action will be taken.   

In the last such case, the High Court upheld the PCA/BWPDA’s legal rights and granted an injunction against the Defendants who were also ordered to pay a substantial sum in legal costs.

PCA Members MUST meet strict criteria

To become a member of the PCA, strict criteria must be met and adhered to throughout membership. Only full PCA members are eligible to display our logo. Individuals who have undertaken training or achieved a qualification through the Association are not authorised to use the PCA logo unless they have also undergone the membership application process and are deemed to meet all required standards and criteria. 

If you believe someone to be falsely claiming membership of the PCA or BWPDA, please contact us online, email [email protected] or call 01480 400000 and our logo abuse team will investigate.
