Trading Standards

Age restricted products

Our Trading Standards Service are responsible for compliance with legislation that restricts the age group to which certain products are sold.

This legislation's focus is to ensure the safety of young people. The products we are responsible for are: 

  • Tobacco and tobacco products.
  • Fireworks.
  • Petrol.
  • Spray paints.
  • DVDs.
  • Computer games.

Other agencies are responsible for other underage products (e.g. alcohol is the remit of the Police), but we can advise on who to contact.
