A New Marriage Trading Standards and ESC

ESC and Trading Standards have been working together to continue to reduce the increasing number of fake electrical goods finding their way into the UK consumer market. Together the two have been working on a range of ventures to combat this growing problem.

During the course of this campaign they have found that the vast number of dangerous chargers being pushed into the UK market is a considerable concern as these items are at great risk of causing electric shock and fire.

ESC has been working with trading standards teams to assist in carrying out raids at locations all across the UK whilst also developing safety information for consumers and traders.

This working together has created a mutually supportive working relationship and ESC’s attendance of the Trading Standards Institute’s Annual Conference also proved to be a success with the ESC seminar on identifying unsafe electrical products winning best session for the most informative seminar.

This kind of working together of two agencies whose goals are mutually similar in many ways can only be a good thing for consumers and the public as a whole if allowed to flourish as the combining of forces in this particular case.

If more agencies begin working alongside one another for mutually beneficial purposes, we could be seeing a lot more of the kind of results we are currently seeing from the ESC and Trading Standards efforts.
