The TS Qualifications Framework section is dedicated to individuals looking to attain trading standards qualifications.

The trading standards qualifications framework (TSQF) launched in 2005 delivers a flexible, modular based framework for today's modern trading standards service.

This structure was recently reviewed and a revised structure was introduced in 2011 after a wide consultation period to ensure that the framework continues to be fit for purpose.

Continual development and adaption of the requirements for qualifying in trading standards enforcement is overseen by the Qualifications and Awards Board (QAB).
