Vulnerability guidance is now available
13 June 2016
Today we launch our Vulnerability guidance to help PRS providers prevent consumer harm before launching and while running a service, which we developed in collaboration with industry members, consumer groups and digital content providers.
We designed this guidance to help providers take steps in making sure premium rate services stays compliant with the Code of Practice and maintain the reputation of the PRS industry. It features:
- a clear definition of vulnerable consumers
- the risk factors to take into consideration before and after starting a PRS service
- practical examples of scenarios involving vulnerable consumers using PRS services.
