CEnTSA are committed to ensuring effective partnership working between local authorities across Central England to achieve measurable improvements in Trading Standards for all those who may benefit.
Trading Standards Services, within local authorities are responsible for a wide range of laws governing services and goods that are bought, hired and sold. Our officers give advice, investigate complaints, undertake inspections and test and sample products and services.
Independently we work to protect our residents and businesses, but as a partnership CEnTSA encourages and builds on the strengths of each authority, sharing best practice and improving service delivery region wide.
Strong links between the Trading Standards services within our regions are vital in providing the best service possible to the people and businesses of the Midlands.
