Advice

ACS provides industry leading information and guides on all aspects of regulatory compliance for convenience retailing. These are covered by the Assured Advice guides and Training Scheme.

ACS provides Assured Advice on every aspect of regulatory compliance that it can. A guide is Assured if it is marked with the ACS Assured Advice logo. If it doesn’t have this mark, it’s still great advice but the law of ‘primary authority’ doesn’t cover the product or procedure and can’t be legally assured. Our Assured Advice guides are below, with best practice guides on other issues at the bottom of the page.

If you are looking for advice on a topic not covered on this site please call us on 01252 515001, or email acs@acs.org.uk
