Details of the services the Trading Standards service offer
The Trading Standards service is responsible for the regulation of all businesses in Middlesbrough in areas such as unsafe goods, false descriptions, counterfeiting, consumer credit, pricing, under-age sales, and weights and measures.
The service is responsible for the enforcement of many Acts of Parliament and associated regulations that control trading practices.
The aim of our service is to promote the economic vitality of Middlesbrough through encouraging fair competition and ensuring adequate protection for consumers.
If you want to complain about a business, Trading Standards are now working in partnership with Citizens Advice.
