Trading Standards make trading safe and fair for everyone. If you run a business, it is important that you understand all the laws that apply to you; this not only makes good business sense, but usually means you are not at risk of substantial financial penalties for non-compliance.
We know that trading standards legislation can be complex and can sometimes feel like a burden, but for general questions, free guidance is available at the Trading Standards Institute's Business Companion. You can also get other useful information if you are thinking of starting a business on the business pages of GOV.UK.
If you require more comprehensive advice than that provided on the Business Companion website, or if you would like an officer to answer a specific query in regard to your business, we offer a bespoke Trading Standards Business Advice Service tailored to the needs of your business.
