tScheme is the industry-led, self-regulatory, not-for-profit organisation set up to create strict service criteria and to approve electronic trust services, including qualified certificate services. tScheme approval will provide assurance to individuals and companies relying upon electronic transactions, enabling growth in e-business.

tScheme develops sets of criteria called Approval Profiles for commercially offered trust services. These allow service providers who are able to demonstrate that their services meet these sets of criteria to achieve added business value by using the tScheme approval mark. A contract is put in place to safeguard continuing good practice.

To obtain this necessary proof of trustworthiness, a trust service provider is assessed to the relevant profiles by an independent tScheme-recognised assessing body. A report is prepared, and if this certifies compliance with the tScheme criteria, the trust service is granted approval by tScheme Ltd, including the right to display the tScheme mark.

Membership of tScheme is open to all sectors of industry, and to trust service users, ensuring that tScheme continues to address true market priorities.
