Trading Standards

EA Law – East Anglian Chambers have a wealth of experience dealing with this specialised area of law.
Trading Standards inspectors have a wide range of powers to bring prosecutions against businesses and individuals who trade.

  • Animal transport offences
  • Causing unnecessary suffering to animals
  • Failure to dispose of animal by-products correctly
  • Failure to meet the basic needs of an animal
  • Farm regulation
  • Fly tipping
  • False advertising
  • Food safety and hygiene
  • Selling an unroadworthy car
  • Supplying unsafe electrical equipment
  • Supplying rented accomodation with equipment that does not conform to safety standards

EA Law – East Anglian Chambers also defend allegations relating to the provision of alcohol and cigarettes, offensive weapons, fireworks, solvents and other restricted items to those under 18 years of age. Also, where underage possession of cigarettes and alcohol are being prosecuted. A growing area of work is defending prosecutions for unfair business practices such as failure to provide a notice of the customer’s right to cancel etc.
