Trading Standards advice for businesses
Where to get help for your business
For help with selling goods online see the Business Companion guide on distance sales.
For help with dealing with a complaint you may have received, visit the Business Companion guide on the sale and supply of goods.
Take a look at the latest product recalls on the Trading Standards Institute website. These are products that have problems which could affect the safety of the user or consumer.
For details of how to get your products tested, for example toys, animal feed stuffs, please contact Edinburgh Scientific Services.
