The Journal of Trading Standards is the new flagship publication of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI), representing UK trading standards professionals across local authorities, business and consumer sectors and central government.
The magazine combines articles from academics and barristers, with input and insight from leading professionals, alongside deep, analytical features from our 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.
The magazine is read by a wide range of influential professionals, covering every part of the UK, from local authority trading standards officers and managers, to major private sector business leaders, lawyers, university professors, MPs, Lords and other senior government representatives.
Copies go out to many of the country’s major institutions, organisations, agencies and associations, including 1,600 addressed and delivered to every MP and Lord in the Houses of Parliament.
Like finance, law or IT, compliance is becoming an indispensable support service, underpinning best practice for every company and organisation, and interest in the topic is growing vigorously.
