Business Companion

Unsure of the law on trading standards or whether the rules apply to you? Find out how the law sees businesses that sell to consumers. Current business information is on the Chartered Trading Standards Institute's website. This provides all aspects of trading standards and consumer protection legislation.

Remember if you're trading in Scotland select that option at the top of the page because the law and enforcement differs from one country to another.
