Trading standards support North Yorkshire businesses by providing, comprehensive advice that enables those businesses to meet their legal obligations.
Businesses generally build up a relationship with and receive help from the local council where the business or its head office is based.
The service offers the Better Regulation Delivery Office - primary authority scheme. This gives businesses the chance to form a partnership with a single local authority, which then provides advice for other councils to take into account when carrying out inspections or dealing with non-compliance. Read an explanatory leaflet.
We also publish guidance to advise businesses on a variety of topics.
Businesses may find free, impartial legal guidance from Business Companion of use, from the basics through to in depth information.
