Consumer product safety for traders

Consumer product safety

If you are a business that sells goods to consumers all of the products that you supply must be safe regardless of whether they are new or second hand. 

Trading Standards check for unsafe consumer goods when they inspect business premises, they also test products to make sure they comply with the law.
