Primary Authority Register

This secure service supports the operation of Primary Authority, which allows businesses to receive assured and tailored advice on meeting regulations through direct or co-ordinated partnerships with local authorities, including fire and rescue authorities.

Local regulators can use this service to view, share or manage information on these partnerships, guiding enforcement work across the UK, while businesses or organisations representing them can view the details of their specific partnerships.

Local authorities must use this service to:

  • apply to nominate partnerships
  • notify primary authorities of proposed enforcement actions against businesses in partnerships
  • submit and publish inspection plans
