Better Business Regulation

Visit the Website

Primary Authority is a statutory scheme established by the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008 (the RES Act). It allows an eligible business to form a legally recognised partnership with a single local authority in relation to regulatory compliance. This local authority is then known as its “primary authority” and is therefore in a position to provide advice other local regulators must respect.

A business that chooses to participate in the Primary Authority is demonstrating a commitment to working in partnership with regulators, and a desire to improve its experience of local regulation. The scheme enables primary authorities to develop positive relationships with such businesses, pathing ways for supporting businesses that are committed to compliance.

Better Business Regulation is a partnership between businesses, business support organisations and local regulatory services. Need help with regulations affecting your business and not sure where to start?
