Making the Case for Trading Standards

Posted 02/08/21

At the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI), we know the true value of Trading Standards more than anyone. We also know how important it is to make the argument for investment in trading standards services in an era when Local Authorities have to make difficult budgetary decisions every year.

CTSI has assembled a series of infographics and video clips to help you make the case for Trading Standards at your Local Authority, with your key stakeholders and among the public at large.

Take a look at the 'making the case' infographics available in both English and Welsh on this page. We ask that you share the infographics on social media and throughout your Local Authority. CTSI is running these messages through our online platforms, and we are getting the message out about the true value of Trading Standards by #MakingtheCase.

Also, please use the below series of video clips which can be shared which support these aims -
