Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (DSSRC)

DSSRC Appellate Board 

Members of the DSSRC Appellate Board play an important role in the direct selling industry’s self-regulatory program designed to ensure the truthfulness and accuracy of advertising.

DSSRC Board members serve on panels that hear appeals from decisions of the DSSRC. Each panel consists of three (3) members: 

  • 1 member selected by the BBB National Programs, Inc.
  • 1 member selected by the Direct Selling Association, and
  • 1 mutually agreed upon by the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc. the Direct Selling Association.

Service as a DSSRC Appellate Board panelist is an important way for members of the direct selling industry to “give back” by promoting the direct selling industry’s goals of a truthful marketplace and the direct selling industry is greatly appreciative of the voluntary service of DSSRC Appellate Board members.
