Business Support

The Trading Standards Service in Wales aims to support businesses by providing comprehensive, easily accessible and relevant advice which will enable those businesses to meet their legal obligations. Our advice and enforcement work also helps to ensure fair competition as we have a consistent approach to all businesses.

Business advice is provided by your local Trading Standards Service.  You simply need to contact us using the details of your own local authority service detailed on the Contact Us page. More detailed support and advice is available from some local authorities via the Primary Authority scheme.

    Business Support Services

    Wales follows the national Primary Authority scheme where businesses are able to form a statutory partnership with a single local authority, which will provide robust and reliable advice that other councils must take into account when carrying out inspections or dealing with non-compliance.

    All our advisory and enforcement work is carried out in accordance with national principles of enforcement and in line with local authority regulatory policies. It is recognised that carrying out enforcement functions in an equitable, practical and consistent manner helps to promote a thriving national and local economy.
