Regulatory Issues

Our Regulatory team understands that the rural sector is subject to extensive and stringent regulation.  We can assist both businesses and individuals with issues arising in respect of compliance.

Regulatory breaches are likely to lead to enforcement action by central and local government departments such as Trading Standards, Environmental Health, DEFRA, the Rural Payments Agency, the Horticultural Marketing Inspectorate, the Food Standards Agency, the Health & Safety Executive, the Fire Service and the RSPCA. 

We advise clients on a range of regulatory issues including:

  • trading standards;
  • food safety, hygiene & descriptions;
  • environmental health;
  • other environmental matters;
  • food certification and assurance schemes;
  • livestock records;
  • livestock transport/welfare regulations;
  • health and safety; and
  • fire safety. 

We provide clear practical advice for clients when dealing with these complex regulatory issues.
