Consumer Services – Underage sales and age restricted goods

Underage sales

A wide range of consumer products are age restricted to ensure that they are only sold to consumers who are old enough to purchase them on health and safety grounds. The products controlled include tobacco, alcohol, videos, knives and fireworks, all of which have the potential to cause damage to the health and safety of the user.

The Trading Standards Service is responsible for enforcing underage sales, which is addressed by trader education, a programme of inspection and test purchasing using underage volunteers in controlled conditions.
