About

 
 
The Journal of Trading Standards is a magazine and website
focusing on consumer protection and trading standards produced
by and for the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI).
 
CTSI is the not-for-profit membership organisation for trading
standards in the UK with the stated aims of promoting and
protecting the success of a modern vibrant economy, and
safeguarding the health, safety and wellbeing of citizens by
enhancing the professionalism of its members.
 
Published by Fourth Estate Creative, the bi-annual magazine and
website will combine articles from academics and barristers, with
updates and insight from leading professionals, alongside deep,
analytical features from its team of seasoned business journalists
and regular columns from experts in consumer affairs like
Watchdog and Rogue Traders presenter Matt Allwright.
 
At this time of shortfalls in public services and growing concern
around consumer protection it is right that these debates become
more prominently public.
 
The Journal of Trading Standards will take the lead in
communicating not only to CTSI members and the wider
profession dispersed across the UK, but also to a broader
audience of interested professionals and businesses.
