Business compliance

Published25th March 2020

Ipswich Borough Council is working with the Police and Trading Standards colleagues to ensure retail and food businesses comply with the Government’s instruction not to trade.

The Prime Minister announced on Monday that only food and other essential premises, takeaway and delivery services can remain open in a bid to tackle the Coronavirus outbreak.

Members of the public who are concerned about businesses who might not be following the new instructions should contact Trading Standards by email at tradingstandards@suffolk.gov.uk or by phone on 0808 223 1133.

Trading Standards will then liaise with the Borough’s Environmental Health team and, if enforced closures are needed, the Police.
