Helping consumers and businesses
Haringey’s trading standards service is responsible for protecting consumers and businesses by ensuring a safe and fair trading environment. Our areas of work include product safety, weights and measures, underage sales, anti-counterfeiting and investigating unfair trading practices
What we can do
We enforce trading standards legislation and offer free advice to business on how to comply with trading standards legislation.
We also run a responsible retailer scheme to help businesses prevent the sale of age restricted goods and illicit tobacco and alcohol.
What we can't do
We do not offer consumer advice - this is available from Citizens Advice Consumer Service (external link).
We enforce a wide range of legislation, which covers:
- Fair trading malpractices
- Safety of goods
- Misleading prices
- Counterfeit goods
- False claims on goods and services
- Weighing and measuring of goods
- Age Restricted Sales
