Trading Standards opens car retail consultation

  John Swift

Retailers have three weeks to register their views on a new set of consumer law guidance being proposed for car dealers.

The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) has opened a consultation and is inviting views on issues including practical steps on complying with fair trading laws for traders who market and sell cars, interpretation of the legal obligations dealers owe to consumers before, during and after any dealings or contracts made with them, guidance on the law as it applies to transparent and fair pricing, information requirements for advertising and selling online, options when disputes arise and how to respond.

The consultation closes on February 15.
