Primary Authority gives companies the right to form a statutory partnership with a single local authority with regard to an area of regulation. The local authority may then provide robust and reliable advice for other regulators to take into account when carrying out inspections or dealing with non-compliance.

We have formed Primary Authority partnerships with organisations in several regulatory areas as listed below:

  • Assurity Consulting Ltd​
  • BNP Paribas Real Estate Advisory & Property Management UK Ltd
  • British Telecommunications Plc
  • Churchill Contract Services Group Holdings Ltd.
  • CBRE Ltd
  • Gourmet Burger Kitchen Limited
  • Harbour & Jones Ltd
  • Hugo Boss UK Ltd
  • Monsoon Accessorise Ltd
  • Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association Ltd
  • Puregym Ltd
  • Virgin Active Ltd
  • Wasabi Ltd

The detail of each partnership may be found on the Primary Authority Register.
