Trading Standards Scotland
Trading Standards Scotland and their duties.
TSS has a duty to coordinate and enforce cross boundary and national casework as well as undertake the specialist functions of tackling illegal money lending and e-crime. It is a resource intended to add capacity to local authority trading standards teams in these areas of activity. The website is intended to signpost consumers, businesses and others to appropriate sources of help and advice. In addition it provides a reporting tool for those wishing to report scams or illegal money lending to the national team. TSS is funded by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and managed by the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA); the representative body of local government in Scotland.
