Trading Standards Institute (TSI)

tradingstandardsThe Trading Standards Institute is a not-for-profit professional body formed in 1881. We have members in the public and private sectors in the UK and abroad.

The Trading Standards Institute encourages honest enterprise and business and helps safeguard the economic, environmental, health and social well-being of consumers.

Trading standards professionals enforce consumer related legislation, legislation which is vast and constantly evolving and changing.

TSI influences much of that evolution through the work of our lead officers, trading standards professionals specialising in different areas of responsibility.
