Primary Authority Partnership


In addition to the existing free help and advice that members can obtain from our Technical Team, through our Co-ordinated Primary Authority Partnership with Hampshire County Council members can now draw upon the expertise of Enforcing Officers. This encompasses all aspects of compliance to legislation involving Petroleum, Trading Standards, Explosives and Liquor Licensing.
Members that apply to participate in the scheme can choose to use any Primary Authority Advice that has been provided to the PRA. Currently, formal advice is being sought on: - 
  • The SPA/PRA online training system for forecourt staff.
  • The adoption of the standardised fuel delivery form.
  • The filling of customer owned refillable lpg cylinders from autogas dispensers.
  • Unmanned operation of petrol forecourts.
Primary Authority Advice can be used to demonstrate compliance to Local Enforcing Authorities that may not be familiar with an aspect of your business.
Members of the scheme will only encounter additional costs should there be a need for Officers of Hampshire County Council to intervene or provide advice to an individual business. Under these circumstances any billable work will not commence without prior agreement with the member.
