We understand that businesses are sometimes either wrongly or unfairly accused of selling or supplying restricted products and we are highly experienced in helping them fight and overcome these allegations.
The sale of restricted products is an area of law that can be more complex than it may first seem. The laws regarding age-restricted sales are prone to change and there are various pieces of legislation surrounding such issues. It can be difficult for businesses to keep abreast of all rules and to ensure these are always followed by all members of staff. And when it comes to judging a person's age, there is always the danger that mistakes could be made.
Some of the main age restricted products in the UK and their age restrictions include:
- Alcohol - 18 years of age
- Cigarettes and tobacco products - 18 years of age
- Most knives, blades and axes - 18 years of age
- Fireworks - 18 years of age
- Lottery tickets and scratch cards - 16 years of age
- Petrol - 16 years of age
Facing a Trading Standards investigation can damage your business's reputation, so it is always recommended to seek expert legal help as soon as possible, regardless of the type of allegation being made against you.
