Normal topicDoor To Door Traders

Police Scotland has had reports of door to door traders in the North East and South West areas of Edinburgh. Officers stopped one male, who, after enquiries, was charged for trading without a valid certificate.
Some door to door traders may be trading lawfully, however please know that any person attending at your door attempting to sell goods requires to be in possession of a current Pedlar Certificate as per the Pedlars Act 1871. If unknown persons attend at your door, use your door chain (if available) and ask to see their Pedlars Certificate on every occasion. Pedlar Certificates are issued to eligible candidates by the Police and entitle the holder to act as a Pedlar anywhere within the UK.

Should the Pedlar not be able to provide a certificate when asked, he may be committing an offence. Please contact Police on 101, or 999 in an emergency, if you have any concerns.

Kind Regards
