Hertfordshire Trading Standards
Our role is to safeguard the interests of consumers and the county's business community. Hertfordshire has one million consumers and is home to over 30,000 businesses, including the national and international headquarters of many companies.
We strive to protect consumers against poor quality goods and services. By advising businesses on legal and quality matters we can make a positive contribution to consumers' quality of life and Hertfordshire's economic prosperity.
