Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) is a shared service delivering Environmental Health functions (food safety, health and safety and many aspects of pollution control) and Licensing administration on behalf of the six district councils in Worcestershire. We also deliver Environmental Health and Licensing functions, on a contractual basis, for other local authorities and organisations.
Trading Standards was previously part of WRS, but this function is now discharged directly by Worcestershire County Council. To find out more about Trading Standards and Animal Health, please visit: http://www.worcestershirets.gov.uk/
