Trading standards professionals enforce consumer related legislation, legislation which is vast and constantly evolving and changing.

TSI influences much of that evolution through the work of our lead officers, trading standards professionals  specialising in different areas of responsibility.

TSI and our lead officers influence by: 

  •  working with the Government and stakeholders,
  •  responding to consultations with our expertise and front line  knowledge,
  •  campaigning on issues raised on behalf of consumers and business.

Find out about the work of our All Party Parliamentary Group for Consumer Affairs and Trading Standards.
