Primary Authority Partnership Scheme

30 Nov 2018

Primary Authority Partnership Scheme: a new member benefit for member businesses selling to consumers. The British Allied Trades Federation (BATF) partnership with Buckinghamshire and Surrey Trading Standards (BSTS) will make it easier for NAJ member businesses nationwide to comply with the law and have access to reliable, tailored regulatory advice drawn up by our Trading Standards partner.

Advice will cover refunds, deposits, bespoke goods, distance selling, product descriptions, pricing, sales documentation and terms & conditions

  • Free benefit to NAJ members. Primary Authority is for all those members who sell to consumers and whose practices are regulated by Trading Standards
  • Will increase consumer confidence in buying from NAJ members showing the Primary Authority Logo
  • The scheme works throughout each of the four home countries. If the Assured Advice has any specific geographical restriction the advice will say so
  • Additional safety blanket against unwanted investigations and enforcement actions by other Trading Standards regions

Primary Authority is a new benefit to which all members are auto-enrolled.  If you DO NOT wish to be part of this scheme, please let us know by email or call 0121 237 1110
