Trading standards for business

We offer business advice to Bristol businesses on all trading standards matters.

Bristol businesses can contact us by:

  • telephone on 0117 922 3604. Consumers contacting this number will be redirected to the Citizens Advice Consumer Service.
  • email at

In order for us to respond to your enquiry please include your business or trading name and your address in your email or letter.

Unfortunately, we are unable to assist businesses based outside Bristol.

For general trading standards advice for businesses you can also see the Business Companion website.

The home authority principle

We are committed to the home authority principle. This trading standards service will give traders within Bristol guidance and help to ensure they comply with the various pieces of Trading Standards legislation. Please contact us for more information.

Primary authority partnership scheme

Primary Authority is a statutory scheme, which allows an eligible business to form a legally recognised partnership with a single local authority in relation to regulatory compliance. This local authority is then known as its 'primary authority'.

If you are a business and interested in forming a Primary Authority partnership with Bristol Trading Standards, please contact us for more information.
