Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Primary Authority Partnerships

Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards operates a Primary Authority Partnerships Scheme for businesses that trade across Council boundaries. This means that qualifying businesses can enter into a legally recognised partnership with us, receiving an agreed package of advice and support. This is chargeable on a cost-recovery only basis.


  • Assured advice - local regulators must respect the advice of the Primary Authority
  • Dedicated officer who gets to know your business
  • We liaise with other councils to provide a single point of contact.
