About Us


The Cosmetic Redress Scheme is a new, straightforward and easy to use consumer redress (ombudsman) scheme.


The main purposes of the Cosmetic Redress Scheme are to allow practitioners to comply with their legal requirement under the ADR Regulations 2015 to signpost consumers to a government authorised consumer redress scheme and to settle or resolve complaints made by consumers against our Members.


Our Members and consumers will both benefit from our simple three stage process to resolve the complaint:

  1. The Member will first be given an opportunity to resolve the complaint directly
  2. The Cosmetic Redress Scheme offers a mediation service
  3. The Cosmetic Redress Scheme Ombudsman will make a decision on the complaint
