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. You can find out more about their role on the lead officer pages.
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.
Go to the Policy Publications sections to view our latest consultation responses, discussion papers and policy reports.
