Trading Standards - Education

The service works in the following specialist teams:

They rely on the thousands of consumers who make complaints about traders or their products & services to them via Consumer Direct each year. They also work with community groups and others to protect the interests of consumers and residents, for example by setting up 'No Cold Calling Zones'.
They provide an email 'newsflash' service for businesses who receive emails notifying them of the latest scams aimed at businesses together with updates concerning new legislation relevant to your trade sector.
