Through Primary Authority, local authorities and fire and rescue authorities are providing businesses with robust and reliable regulatory advice. This supports growth by enabling them to invest with confidence in products, practices and procedures, knowing that there is endorsement of the resources they devote to compliance. The participating businesses cover a wide variety of sectors and most of them have less than 50 employees.
The first booklet - first published in December 2013 - summarises the main features of Primary Authority and now includes brief details on the measures to extend and simplify the scheme being introduced on 1 October 2017 under the Enterprise Act 2016.
The second booklet - first published in March 2015 - highlights examples of businesses that have gained from Primary Authority, through direct partnerships and as members of trade associations in co-ordinated partnerships.
