Journal of Trading Standards gives voice to the profession
The Journal of Trading Standards, the Chartered Trading Standards Institute’s (CTSI) innovative new multi-platform publication, has now launched in print and online.
The print magazine and news hub will document changes in the trading standards profession as and when developments happen, ensuring news coverage remains relevant and timely, and explores the wider context of consumer protection like never before.
Both will combine articles from academics and barristers with updates and insight from the trading standards profession, alongside features from a team of seasoned business journalists and regular columns from experts in consumer affairs like Watchdog and Rogue Traders presenter Matt Allwright.
The website features video interviews with key figures in the trading standards landscape, as well as coverage of major events like the CTSI Symposium 2018 and media coverage featuring our CEO and lead officer experts.
CTSI is the only not-for-profit membership organisation for trading standards in the UK with the stated aims of promoting and protecting a modern, vibrant economy, promoting honest businesses, and safeguarding the health, safety and wellbeing of citizens by enhancing the professionalism of its members.
CTSI has teamed up with Fourth Estate Creative to publish the bi-annual magazine and website.
Editor-in-Chief and Director of Communications at CTSI, Eleni Chalkidou said: “The ambition for our publication is to put the spotlight on the profession. We invite you to contribute your expertise and give a voice to the great work of trading standards. Together we are stronger.”
The Journal of Trading Standards will take the lead in communicating not only to CTSI members and the wider profession dispersed across the UK, but also to a broader audience of interested professionals and businesses.
Editor Paul Evans said: “We want the voice of the profession to carry out to government, to businesses and to consumers. At this time of shortfalls in public services and growing concern around consumer protection it is right that debates around trading standards become more prominently public.”
