Market Surveillance

It is the responsibility of this department to visit all business premises in the Borough of Blackburn with Darwen to ensure compliance with the full range of consumer protection legislation. We do not normally announce that we are to make a visit to a premises but will endeavour to call at an appropriate time. 

During our inspection programme we visit premises to ensure that any legislation relevant to that particular business is being complied with. Minor discrepancies will usually be dealt with by giving advice and guidance as to how compliance can be achieved in the future. More serious infringements or advice that has been ignored may lead to prosecution.

In addition to our inspection programme we conduct regular sampling initiatives where we take samples of products, such as food and drink, agricultural feeds, toys, electrical equipment, and second hand goods. These items are then submitted for analysis to determine compliance with the relevant legislation.
