CTSI Manifesto 2015

CTSI have produced a new manifesto ahead of the general election in 2015 highlighting the role of trading standards in protecting consumers and helping legitimate businesses to thrive. 

The average budget for trading standards services has fallen by 40% over the lifetime of this parliament.

We are calling for greater recognition from MPs, elected members and chief executives of the role of trading standards in achieving:

  • A growing economy
  • A healthy society
  • A safer community
  • A sustainable environment

You can print copies to distribute at events and to elected members.  

Take a look at the Policy Priorities pages for further details on how trading standards contributes to the four key policy areas listed above.
