Latest announcements


Nominations for CTSI Chair, Vice Chair and Second Vice Chair of the Council of the Institute 2021

CTSI is seeking nominations for the roles of Chair, Vice Chair and Second Vice Chair of the Council of the Institute for 2021. Nominations for these officer posts can only be made by an established Branch or Section of the Institute, and have to be signed by at least two officers. If an individual member wishes to nominate a person this must be done through their Branch or Section.

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, CTSI Council has agreed to move the CTSI Annual General Meeting (AGM), which normally takes place in September, to December. This will allow Council members to continue in their roles until the AGM and allow Branches to hold their own AGM in the Autumn.   

Nomination forms are available to download from our website www.tradingstandards.uk/nominations   

If there is more than one nomination for each post a ballot will be conducted in accordance with the Bye-Laws of the Institute. 

Closing date for receipt of nominations is noon 19 August 2020. Please send completed forms to institute@tsi.org.uk 


Nominations for College of Fellows

Dear Colleague

The College of Fellows Annual General Meeting has been delayed and so CTSI are able to extend the deadline for nominations for Fellowships to be awarded in 2021 to the end July 2020.

The College is seeking your help with nominations for Fellowship for possible installation in 2021. We would encourage Sections and Branches to regularly consider potential nominations for any of their number that meet the criteria for Fellowship.  

The criteria for admission and nomination form for Fellowship can be obtained from Brian Stone, Registrar.

The College of Fellows encourages all nominations for Fellowship. The College would particularly welcome nominations that reflect the diverse profile of the trading standards profession today.


Membership payments

Please note payment options for new and outstanding membership subscriptions are currently suspended during the corona virus pandemic lock-down. CTSI will offer these services once normal working conditions are resumed. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

This suspension does not apply to any member with an existing direct debit mandate, these will continue to be processed normally.

Should you wish to pay your fees directly, please pay via BACS using the CTSI bank details found on your invoice, and your member number to identify the payment.
