Trading Standards

Our duty is to create and maintain a safe and fair trading environment where Kent businesses can operate and grow and Kent consumers can engage in their economic activity with confidence.

You can report a problem with a trader or product to Trading Standards by contacting the national consumer helpline. By calling nationally, you are reporting locally - you don't need to call us directly because the national team will pass the details onto us.

You can phone them, write to them, or fill in their online form.
