    Hi

    Well I had an interesting and scarey chat with my local TS person this afternoon. As I'm going to be selling craft kits to children I thought I'd better see what the TS peeps had to say. So now I have to send a couple of my kits in fully finished mode including packaging & instructions to them to get them analysed and given the yay or nay. A lenghty process!

    Has anyone else been down this road and do you have any advise ref dealing with them.

    The TS man was very helpful in an officious kind of way

    I've never had to send things to them so cant comment on that but the times I have rung them about something they have been very helpfull and patient with me. They are essentially the good guys, though sometimes they can be bad guys too.

      I've not had dealings with them. If its anything to do with children I think its good you get them checked. I wouldn't want to fall foul of anything. Hope it goes ok

        I am always sending things to Trading Standards. I find they are generally very helpful and have given me loads of business advice etc in the past. I find it feels good to have a piece of paper saying that your product has passed their tests...it does take a while though (about a month) but so worth it...I also send them things like website terms and conditions to proof read.

          Mmmm, didn't think about T&C's. Thanks for that. Do they assess your jewellery for free or do you have to pay for it to go and get analysed?

            The 1st request free but then after that you have to pay...but that may all depend upon where you live and who they use etc.
