Trading Standards investigations
Trading Standards may initiate an investigation into your conduct for all sorts of reasons. A complaint may be made from a member of the public, or a Trading Standards officer may even have interacted with your business while ‘undercover’. If this has led to any suspicion of wrongdoing, an investigation will be launched.
