Trading Standards are looking for Test Purchasers

Trading Standards are looking for young people to take part in test purchasing exercises. We want to find out which shops are breaking the law by selling age restricted products to young people under 18.

If you are 16 or 17 years old and your parent or guardian would be happy for you to get involved with this, we will pay any expenses and provide refreshments. Travel to and from home will be taken care of and you can even put the experience on your CV.

Further information on test purchasing and a test purchasing application form can be found at:


The Highland Council’s Trading Standards Section at 38 Harbour Road, Inverness IV1 1UF
