The National Pawnbrokers' Association ("the Association" and “NPA”) is a company whose object is to provide both a central organisation for the pawnbrokers of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and International members who comply with the principles of the NPA.
The NPA provides a forum for the examination and discussion of all relevant questions relating to the Pawnbroking business in the United Kingdom, with a view to the promotion and maintenance of high standards of business conduct and professional competence, which it enforces. It raises issues and concerns with regulators, and ensures the media, customers and other stakeholders understand the principles and workings of Pawnbroking.
The objective of these rules is to further that objective and to set out in detail certain rules which members of the Association are required to observe. NPA members must also comply with the NPA Customer Code.
