Performance indicators

The performance of Trading Standards Service is monitored and reviewed through a number of performance indicators. Corporate indicators require us to set targets and report on the number of consumer complaints, business advice requests and traders acting as consumers, completed within 14 days. We provide annual statutory reports on the number of planned high risk premises completed as well as tobacco enforcement returns to the Scottish Government.


Satisfaction surveys

We carry out regular surveys of those that seek our help in resolving consumer complaints and disputes and those we monitor as part of our market surveillance and enforcement duties. View Trading Standards consumer and business survey results.
