CTSI works in parliament to represent members at a national level and raise awareness of the profession. Current priorities include monitoring the passage of the Enterprise Bill and the Investigatory Powers Bill through parliament and making parliamentarians aware of cuts to consumer protection as demonstrated by the Trading Standards Workforce Survey.

Remember that MPs receive many letters a day, and the more personal you make your letter, the more likely you will receive a positive response. Adding personal experience or local examples to your letter will help to make it more emotive, but if you don't feel comfortable identifying yourself as a trading standards officer or an employee of the local authority, you don't have to do so.
