Through this webpage the City Council's Trading Standards Service aims to inform and at the same time promote to consumers and businesses alike, the services current campaign work programme. This campaign work programme has been carefully developed from our Business Service Plan which in turn has been developed to provide both effective and timely responses to a wide range of important issues which come to the services attention. Typically many of these issues concern the safety of products, related issues around age restricted products and also doorstep crime.

These important issues come to the services attention from a wide range of sources:

  • Policies and legislation brought into force by Central Government,
  • Local policies adopted by local elected Members,
  • Concerns expressed by local residents,
  • Concerns expressed by people who work in the city,
  • Concerns expressed by people who visit the city,
  • Concerns expressed by legitimate businesses,
  • Concerns expressed by a wide range of external partners including Northumbria Police, UKBF, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service and Public Health

Typically many of these issues concern the safety of products, related issues around age restricted products, unfair trading practices, illegal loan sharks, illegal products and also doorstep crime.
