Primary Authority Scheme

The Primary Authority Scheme supports economic growth through better regulation and cutting red tape for businesses.

It’s one of the most effective ways for fire safety regulators to improve fire safety standards and support their communities by forming partnerships with businesses, charities and other organisations.

Becoming a Primary Authority partner enables a single Fire and Rescue Service to become your single point of contact for all fire safety regulation advice. It also shows your commitment to working with regulators.
