Trading Standards

Trading Standards laws regulate the quantity, quality and safety of goods, requiring traders to trade fairly to encourage a level playing field. Our authorised officers can take action against traders who breach consumer and trading standards legislation.

Business advice is available from the Chartered Trading Standards Institute's Business Companion (external website - select 'Scotland' option) for comprehensive and up to date guidance.

Businesses in Fife can contact Trading Standards for advice and support on their legal obligations under relevant legislation.

Our qualified inspectors of weights and measures test weighing machines, petrol pumps and other measuring equipment used for trade.
