Now in its eleventh edition, ‘The Pink Book: Legislation for tourist accommodation and attractions’ provides guidance to all the legislation applicable to running an accommodation business – from food hygiene and health and safety to business management and tax. PASC UK Members receive a hard copy of the Pink Book as part of their Membership Pack.

The Pink Book is the only guide to legislation specifically aimed at all accommodation providers in England and the eleventh edition is sponsored by the Professional Association of Self-Caterers (PASC UK).

Written by Kurt Janson, Director of the Tourism Alliance, The Pink Book is written in easy to understand language.

Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston MP said:

“The owners and operators of accommodation and hospitality businesses have worked tirelessly over the past year and will play a central role as our local communities and economy build back better from the challenges of the pandemic.

“The Pink Book is an important resource to help our accommodation providers maintain their superb service for visitors, helping us to make a holiday in England a truly memorable experience.”

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:

 “The Pink Book is an important tool for tourism businesses providing a repository of easy to use, up-to-date guidance on legislation. It is vital in supporting the industry to maintain its high standards and it will also assist businesses in meeting their regulatory obligations as they move towards recovery.”
