Trading Standards laws regulate the quantity, quality and safety of goods, requiring traders to trade fairly. Our officers can take action against traders who breach trading standards legislation.
The website www.businesscompanion.info contains free and impartial information, and is Government-backed. It was set up by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute to provide guidance for businesses that need to know about all aspects of trading standards and consumer protection legislation. Ensure you select the Scotland option at the top of the page if you're trading in Scotland.
Our qualified inspectors of weights and measures test weighing machines, petrol pumps and other measuring equipment used for trade. Businesses in Fife can contact Trading Standards for advice and support on their legal obligations under relevant legislation.
