Primary Authority

Date updated: 22/03/2023

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.

  • Accenture (UK) Limited

  • The Association of Dog Boarders
  • Pet Industry Federation

  • CBRE Ltd
  • Hugo Boss UK Ltd
  • Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association Ltd
  • Puregym Ltd
  • Virgin Active Ltd

Details of each partnership are available on the Primary Authority Register.
