The Cherished Numbers Dealers Association (CNDA) & The Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF)
The Cherished Numbers Dealers Association (CNDA) is the Cherisished Numbers department of the Retail Motor Industry Federation and was established in 1971 to represent reputable and responsible dealers of personalised and attractive registration number and to protect the interests of their customers. CNDA is today affiliated to the Retail Motor Industry Federation whose various federated associations represent almost every sector of the retail motor industry.
Members of the CNDA adhere to a strict Code of Practice, and each member is regularly monitored by the Association to ensure that, for instance, members do not advertise registrations that they cannot be reasonably certain of supplying and that transfers are complete within an acceptable time limit. CNDA member dealers have a proven reputation and, in the unlikely event of a problem or dispute, help is close at hand from the CNDA.
The Association exists to:
- » Increase awareness of the cherished number industry
- » Promote and protect member businesses
- » Develop and maintain standards in the sector
- » Provide a channel for communication and information
Through its Rule Book and Advertising Code the Association aims to ensure good business practices amongst its members and to maximize customer satisfaction.
The Association seeks to promote member businesses through its own website, regular advertising in the trade journals, a pre-recorded information line and the provision of literature.
Applications for membership are subject to formal procedures and review by the Association's Executive Committee.
The CNDA works closely with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and with the DVLNI to promote the interests of its members and the industry by constantly reviewing the statutory requirements for the cherished transfer and retention schemes with a view to introducing greater flexibility in procedures.
Further publicity attaches to the Association through the operation of a certificated valuation service for registration numbers. CNDA valuations are acceptable for legal, insurance and fiscal purposes.
