As we all know, the Board is in business to keep the public safe from US, not genuine business people who are trying to make an illegal living.  It is unlikely that the Board will do anything about this because it would take funds away from persecuting actual plumbers.  Even tho the company address is there for everyone to see, the Board will claim they couldn't find the outlet or something equally as stupid.

More to the point, have any westie plumbers been called to deal with one of those pan connectors? They look so frail, I can imagine a good session would split the plastic!
