Primary Authority is a means for businesses to receive assured and tailored advice on meeting environmental health, trading standards and licensing requirements through a single point of contact.  Primary Authority is based on legal partnerships between businesses and individual local authorities.  Providing a business follows the advice given they have protection against enforcement action from another authority.  The Primary Authority charges for the work undertaken and advice given to the business on a cost-recovery basis.

Primary Authority offers significant benefits to businesses:

• They have access to relevant, authoritative tailored advice.  Being in partnership with the Regulator

• They can gain recognition of robust compliance arrangements

• They can draw on an established and effective means of meeting business regulations

• They can be more confident they are protecting themselves and their customers
