Consumer Protection

The Environmental Health Department will provide advice and support to assist businesses in complying with consumer protection legislation.  We carry out inspections, sample and test goods to ensure they meet safety standards and investigate complaints from consumers.

We will provide information and advice for manufacturers, distributors and suppliers to ensure all products placed on the market are safe.  General product safety is regulated by the General Product Safety Regulations 2005 (GPS Regulations). These Regulations apply to all products (new and second-hand) used by consumers. Other products must comply with specific legislation which will take precedence.
