Can any one advise what safety standards need to be adhered to when importing electrical goods from China for retail reselling in the UK.

I also looked up on UK's importing policy, from the UK government site (and it's chaos) - =) There's a downloanable guide from here -

I would also keep in mind that there may be some issues concerning voltage. As you probably know, electronics made for the U.S. have completely different specifications for voltage than those made for the UK. I would just make sure that the electronics you're importing will work with UK voltage and electrical outlets.

I hope that helps!
