Primary Authority has the ability to really help your business. Here's how:
As long as you are following the Assured Advice and Guidance from Cherwell District Council via NCASS, other Local Authorities can’t ask you to do something different.
If a Local Authority takes or proposes to take enforcement action against your business, and this would be inconsistent with Primary Authority Advice that you are following, your Primary Authority would be able to block the proposed action.
In addition, if another Local Authority has a question about the advice, or a different interpretation of the law, the Primary Authority will liaise with them to resolve the matter.
You should be inspected less frequently or less intensively, meaning that you can get on with running your business – protected from the consequences of inconsistent local interpretation of regulations.
Your paperwork will be held centrally on our online database and EHO’s will be able to view your documents before they visit you, saving you time and money. Some EHO’s may choose not to visit you and send you a self-inspection questionnaire as a result.
Event Organisers could be far more likely to hire Primary Authority Caterers, as it reduces their liability and their risks, whilst giving them confidence about the professionalism of the traders they work with.
Some businesses that are already in the scheme are reporting that advice from their Primary Authority has had significant commercial benefits in reassuring their business customers and helping them to win contracts to supply products.

As a part of the Primary Authority Partnership you are backed by Cherwell District Council and can pass on any disputes or issues to them.
EHO's have to check the database prior to an inspection, and have access to all your documents if they have been uploaded to the system. Therefore when they do attend, they only need to see that you are operating according to the Assured Advice & Guidance.

"The endless website of information, training, guidance, links and legislation. Then there is the customer care and patience. It really is 5 star. Where can you obtain a fraction of this anywhere else at your price! It makes me proud when we have our Local Authority inspections and are given the thumbs up every time thanks to NCASS."
