Alliance Supports Consumer & Trading Standards Agency Proposals

16 March 2005

Trading Standards services take a front line role in the fight against the increasing trade in counterfeit and pirated goods and are currently operating on a budget that isn't large enough to stem this growing problem. The Treasury recommendations to provide consistent local authority regulatory services are therefore particularly welcomed by the Alliance.

It is clear that better coordination, partnership working, centralising standards and the targeting of resources to areas where it is most needed will mean that Trading Standards will be more able to ensure a fair and safe trading environment.
