Trading Standards inspections

Trading Standards undertake targeted visits and surveys, respond to consumer complaints and advise businesses on a wide range of topics.

They ensure that:

  • goods and services are correctly described and priced
  • weighing and measuring equipment is accurate
  • farmed animals are kept and transported safely and accompanied by the correct paperwork
  • goods meet safety standards and come in the correct quantities
  • food and animal feeds are checked for composition, labelling, adulteration, chemical contamination and date marking.

Following a visit any serious contraventions are reported. This can result in legal action being taken by the service against the trader/individual.
