Did you know in 2009 the British Frozen Food Federation was the first trade association to offer primary authority assurance, the scheme offered additional benefits to its membership. With so much misinterpretation of legal regulation recently, there has never been a better time to join!

Simon Brentnall (Head of Health & Safety) at BFFF explains;

‘Primary Authority is a government run scheme that helps protect businesses from unnecessary legal challenges. The scheme helps to ensure businesses operating in the food sector are doing so safely and legally. It all started in 2009 when the government recognised that the interpretation of regulation by local authority could be variable, this noticed especially in national companies that spanned across various regions. With an aim of consistency, the primary authority scheme was launched. BFFF has a high proportion of its guidance assured by primary authority giving it credibility and legal standing. 

 BFFF offers its members primary authority partnerships in the following areas:

  • Health & Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Food Safety and Hygiene
  • Food Standards and Labelling
  • Weights and Measures
  • Fair Trading

Our local authority partners providing these specialisms are:

  • Wakefield MDC
  • Essex County Fire and Rescue Service
  • Cambridgeshire County Council
  • South Cambridge District Council

To register your company for primary authority members should contact carlbrown@bfff.co.uk stating the areas of interest (H&S, Fire, Food Hygiene etc)

For those wanting more information on primary authority please contact simonbrentnall@bfff.co.uk
