Trading standards

Alcohol and tobacco - report illegal trading

The council's Alcohol and Tobacco Unit targets the illegal importation and distribution of alcohol and tobacco products.

We work closely with partner agencies such as Merseyside Police and HMRC .

We investigate trade and consumer complaints, carry out routine inspections at licensed premises and take enforcement action when needed.

Tell us about illegal sales

If you are aware of anyone selling alcohol or tobacco products illegally, please contact us.

Become a young volunteer

We regularly need young volunteers to help with our programme of test purchasing of age restricted products. Are you interested?
