Our Trading Standards service aims to ensure a fair and safe trading environment for both consumers and reputable traders. The service is available to the whole community. If you're a consumer or you run a business, trading standards can help you.
Advice for consumers
We work in partnership with Citizens Advice Consumer Service to provide advice if you have a disagreement with a shop or business about a product or service you have bought.
The approved trader scheme can help you find traders who are committed to high standards and are prepared to comply with both the letter and the spirit of the law. More information about the scheme including how to join if you are a trader, can be found here
Advice for businesses
Our business information sheets can help you understand your legal responsibilities on a range of issues.
Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards operates a Primary Authority Partnerships Scheme for businesses that trade across Council boundaries. This means that qualifying businesses can enter into a legally recognised partnership with us, receiving an agreed package of advice and support.
