Trading standards

Working in partnership with local businesses

The trading standards team can help your business to trade within often complex regulatory frameworks. We are here to offer advice and guidance and have trained and experienced officers who can provide advice and guidance on compliance issues.

By working together in partnership we can assist you to get it right first time, reduce compliance costs and help to ensure that your business is trading on the right side of the law.
