Stay protected under the Primary Authority Partnership

Our Primary Authority Partnership with Milton Keynes 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.

Keep legal with your own Due Diligence System

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 Milton Keynes 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 standard membership, it’s personalised to your business and you’ll receive a new one when you renew each year.

Stay safe with your Online Risk Assessment

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. That'll put a smile on your local EHO's face.

Get noticed with your personal Profile Page

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.

Stay organised with your documentation Management Hub

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.

Why do we charge a Certificate Fee?

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.
