Trading standards

Our aim is to provide a fair and safe trading environment for the consumers and businesses of Dorset, through education, advice, enforcement, and by working together with our partners.

    • Consumers
    • Consumer advice: make a complaint about a business, find approved traders, learn about and report a scam or obtain a door card to deter uninvited doorstep traders.
    • Business
    • We offer advice and information to help local businesses comply with the law and work to national guidelines known as the Home Authority Principle.
    • Animal health
    • We help promote and maintain standards of animal health and welfare alongside disease control. We are responsible for enforcing over 150 acts, orders and regulations.
    • Buy with confidence
    • If you are looking for a Trading Standards approved trader, are a business wanting our approval, or would like to recommend a trader to us.
