Charter protects shoppers against countfeit or unsafe goods
Shoppers in North End Road Market can be confident that they are buying genuine goods, after Hammersmith and Fulham Council signed up to the Real Deal Charter.
The charter aims to protect shoppers and local traders and businesses against counterfeit or unsafe goods.
" Our street traders are the life blood of North End Road and we are determined to stop anyone undermining them by trying to sell dodgy goods," says Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents' Services.
" The Real Deal Charter means shoppers in North End Road Market can stay confident that they are buying the genuine article. My thanks to our trading standards and street trading teams for their work in signing the council up to the charter."
Patricia Lennon, Real Deal Campaign Director, adds: "We are delighted to welcome North End Road Market to the Real Deal. By signing our charter, the council is demonstrating its commitment to providing a safe, fair market for local shoppers, market traders and the wider community."
There are currently 86 councils signed up to the Real Deal Charter, covering 379 different local markets.
The Real Deal campaign brings together local authority trading standards services, market operators and traders, industry groups and copyright and trademark owners to fight the trade in counterfeit goods.
