Trading Standards alcohol testing

Trading Standards officers play an important role in regulating product safety.

We achieve this by:

  • inspecting, sampling and testing consumer products
  • seizing and destroying unsafe products
  • prosecuting the most serious offenders.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills have produced guidance on general product safety entitled 'The General Product Safety Regulations 2005 - Guidance for businesses, consumers and enforcement authorities' which can be viewed on their website at: www.bis.gov.uk/files/file22713.pdf

Advice on specific areas of product safety can be found below.
