Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) and Trading Standards Officers (TSOs) are employed by local Councils (UK Local Government). On these you can find relevant Press Releases and a broader overview of the work of EHOs and TSOs. Environmental Health Officers enforce the quality of hygiene in British food shops and restaurants, and outside London they often oversee farm animal welfare, including abattoir conditions. Outside London, Trading Standards Officers enforce the farm animal welfare regulations, including slaughter house regulations. TSOs are the starting point for querying mislabelled, or misleading product descriptions, and they investigate, and enforce the law when non-organic food products are passed off as organic, Richmond-upon-Thames being one of the leading prosecutors in this respect. Trading Standards Officers enforce the law on underweight, or out-of-date, food purchases. They verify the quality of awarded qualifications, and whether a person may have "enhancing their own qualifications" TSOs investigate the growing number of web-based university, and qualification-awarding websites, and close down the scams
