Trading Standards

Inspection, testing and enforcement

A Trading Standards Officer's Duties.

Our Trading Standards officers inspect trading premises to ensure that they are complying with Trading Standards legislation. The frequency of visits is determined by nationally-recognised risk analysis criteria. Inspection and testing are biased towards manufacturers, packers and importers based in the city.

Our inspections give us the opportunity to advise traders on legislation and changes in the law that affect them. Our officers also take samples to test for safety and composition, claims, descriptions and pricing.
