The Home Authority Principle

The Home Authority Principle has been developed by Trading Standards as an aid to good enforcement practice.

The aim of the principle is to provide businesses with a single source of guidance and advice, provide a system for the resolution of disputes and ensure that there is effective liaison between local authorities.

At Wrexham Trading Standards we are keen to develop informal working relationships with local businesses by offering them advice and guidance. This proactive approach helps ensure high standards of public protection are maintained.

The Primary Authority Scheme

The Primary Authority Scheme builds on the foundation created by the Home Authority Principle, but entails a fundamental shift in the nature of the relationship between the regulated and the regulator.

For the first time, businesses will be able to form a statutory partnership with a single local authority, which will provide robust and reliable advice that other local authorities must take into account when carrying out inspections or dealing with non-compliance.

Both schemes aim to support the Governments Better Regulation Initiatives and can benefit businesses who trade across two or more local authority boundaries. For further information on how the scheme works contact the Trading Standards Division.
