11 June 2018 - Trustpilot today announced it’s recent participation in the working group for the new ISO standard (ISO 20488). The new standard details out requirements for organisations to effectively manage consumer review sites and features recommendations that will help increase consumer trust and protect suppliers from unfair treatment.
Kasper Heine, General Counsel and Head of Trust & Transparency Unit at Trustpilot said,
“We’re delighted to have been part of the working group for this new standard and are extremely supportive of everything it stands for within our industry. We’re proud to offer a reviews platform which brings consumers and businesses together in an open and transparent way and this new ISO standard further supports our ambition to be the most trusted and transparent place for people to share their experiences and for businesses to use this to continually improve.”
