Trading Standards Team
Welcome to Medway Trading Standards home page.
We provide specialist advice to businesses, and through working in partnership with
the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline, to consumers.
The role of trading standards is to ensure that
businesses compete in a fair and safe manner, ensuring benefits for both
consumers and legitimate traders. Individual consumers would find it hard to
influence businesses about their conduct. For this reason, consumer protection
legislation makes sure goods and services are correctly described and any prices
quoted are not misleading.
The council enforces the law in the following main
- fair trading,
- safety of consumer goods,
- product counterfeiting,
- food standards and composition,
- underage sales,
- animal health and welfare (farm animals only),
- standards and composition of animal feeds,
- consumer credit,
- doorstep crime,
- petrol and explosives storage,
- weights and measures (including certification of
public weighbridge operators).
