Vision and strategy

Impact and effectiveness of local authority trading standards services

CTSI, in partnership with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), commissioned a piece of independent academic research through the Institute for Local Government Studies at the University of Birmingham to examine the impact and effectiveness of local authority trading standards services.

The research objectives of the report were to:

  • Examine the benefits and efficiency of trading standards activities
  • Show how they align with national and local priorities
  • Show the impact of cuts to funding and staffing levels over recent years

The final report, 'The Impact of Local Authority Trading Standards in Challenging Times' was published on 21 March 2015.
