Primary Authority helps businesses form a statutory partnership with councils. The council advises the business as well as other councils who take the advice into account when carrying out inspections or dealing with non-compliance.
Through Primary Authority your business will have access to professional guidance and legal advice based on a detailed understanding of your operations. It prevents inconsistent interpretation of regulations and applies regardless of where businesses are based or where products are sold.
Primary Authority allows businesses to be involved in their own regulation.
Westminster City Council's Primary Authority partnerships can be found on GOV.UK.
