Trading Standards inspections

18 September 2014

The FSB is campaigning to require Trading Standards to give 48 hours notice to business prior to routine inspections. To support our campaign we need examples of where routine Trading Standards inspections have been carried out without notice and caused inconveniences for businesses, or where inspectors have had to return because relevant managers and paperwork was not available due to the unannounced nature of the inspection. Get in touch if you can help.
