Rogue Customer with hidden intent,

There are times when we all run up against somebody whose sole intent in this world is to be a pain in the rear to as many people as possible.

I have no idea how much money is involved, but do not let them turn this into a life's task.

Would a screen shot, taken from a franchised business website, be enough to satisfy a court of the proof of ownership of credentials, Eg, Member of National Council of Little Plastic Toys, mbe, LLP, xyz, Member of 'NNCF' 'XYZ' council of broken tv's, or would the court expect something better?

That kind of thing may be acceptable. Do you not have certificates?

The screenshot has been included in a disclosure bundle as proof of the credentials of an expert.

You or i could build a website and claim to be whatever we wanted to be. :D

If he's on a register of some sort of trade or professional body, I'd expect that register to be searchable hopefully without a fee, otherwise people could make it up.

If you dispute the credentials of the expert, then say so to the judge, the judge may then appoint an independent expert. But if you lose, its more cost on you.
My suggestions are not legal advice

Dig into the credentials. Make enquiries. Ask questions. Phone the trade body and check.

Read CPR 35 on the requirements the Court rules impose on expert witnesses.
