Since CBEST was launched in 2014, CREST has gone on to work with other financial services regulators overseas, as well as additional industrial regulators in the UK.

Throughout 2016 and 2017, CREST worked extensively with the Department of Culture, Media and Support (DCMS) and OFCOM to launch the TBEST scheme. CREST took a similar role in the creation of this program and provided practical adaptations of the CBEST scheme to align it to the needs of the telecommunications sector.
