Six leading petrol retailers with more than 600 UK filling stations between them have joined a red tape cutting scheme launched by the London and Fire Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA).
Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Shell, Motor Fuel Group, Snax 24 Ltd, and Park Garage Group have formed a primary authority partnerships with the LFEPA, which covers the inspection and enforcement of petroleum licences. Under the scheme the LFEPA will take responsibility for ensuring that petroleum legislation is enforced consistently at all filling stations in London. It will also provide advice from a single source for companies operating across two or more local councils and fire authorities.
The Local Better Regulation Office administers the scheme and it’s chairman Clive Grace commented: “London Fire & Emergency Planning Authority is demonstrating its willingness to lead the way in reducing the burden of administration on business while maintaining the safety of the public as its paramount concern.€ﾨ€ﾨ
“We hope that other fire authorities follow their lead. The need to ease the burden of red tape on business has never been more acute, and primary authority is a proven, successful method of doing that.”
