Our Primary Authority Partnership with Cherwell District Council is designed to reduce the burden of red tape for your business and to stop you getting over-inspected by EHOs. Adhere to NCASS advice and guidance and rest easy knowing your business is operating to Government-approved standards.
As an NCASS member under this partnership, you will be protected from any proposed enforcement action that is inconsistent with Primary Authority advice.
There’s no need to panic over keeping your business legal with The NCASS Due Diligence System for Mobile Caterers. Quite a mouthful, huh? That might be true but it’s also pinnacle to legally managing food safety in your business.
Your NCASS Due Diligence System has been fully audited by Cherwell District Council so if you stick to it, you’ll be operating to Government-assured advice and guidance. And the best news? It’s included in your Premium Plus membership, it’s personalised to your business and you’ll receive a new one when you renew each year.
Food businesses are legally required to produce and maintain a Risk Assessment based on HACCP principles. The easiest way to create yours and keep it up-to-date? With the NCASS Online HACCP Risk Assessment system. Create your risk assessment online and update it every time your menu, equipment or processes change. 20 online risk assessments are included in Pro membership. That'll put a smile on your local EHO's face.
Your own online space to advertise your services, show off your training qualifications, and tell the world a little bit about yourself. It will also act as a go-to spot for event organisers.
Sick and tired of searching for lost pieces of important legal documentation? Well you’ll be able to keep all of your documents safely in one safe place online. You’ll be able to manage all of your policies, procedures and paperwork quickly and without fuss. Sounds appealing to you? Then consider how much event organisers and EHOs will love you for it too.

No question about running a food business is too small or too big, and you won’t be hanging around on hold at NCASS. The friendly and knowledgeable support team are waiting to chat all things catering. Plus you’ll get access to our Legal & Financial helpline, for the questions we don’t know the answers to.
Your membership will entitle you to discounts on catering equipment, products and insurance from our trusted suppliers, so you can concentrate on increasing your profits.

DISCOUNTED to £999 (when paid annually)
You’re welcome to use our continuous payment authority scheme to pay for your membership on a monthly basis. The first payment is £227, followed by 11 monthly payments of £83.00. That adds up to £1140 altogether, but we'll discount that to £999 if you pay for a year's membership in one lump sum.
or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your telephone number to request a call back.
We charge a small fee of £12.50 - £15 because we pay City & Guilds for every single one of your training certificates so that you can show off your accreditation by them. And we need to cover our production and postage costs too of course.
We’re the only course provider to create quality, laminated A4 colour certificates, because we want them to stand up to your catering environment. Complete with its own security hologram, your NCASS training certificate will prove that you and your staff are qualified to City & Guilds accredited standards.
We’ll even send it on the next working day so that you won’t be waiting long for proof of your qualification. We don’t think it’s too big a price to pay really.
