Code of Practice for Northern Ireland
The current version of the Food Law Code of Practice and associated Practice Guidance for Northern Ireland is now available.
The current Code of Practice for Northern Ireland came into force on the 11th April 2012. The Code was revised to reflect developments in policy in respect of the delivery of Official Controls for food.
The key changes relate to the embedding of the recommendations from the Public Inquiry following the E.Coli O157outbreak in South Wales in 2005, extension of the use of remedial action notices to non-approved establishments and changes to the qualification requirements for officers to seize and detain food.
The Code of Practice and associated Practice Guidance, as well as relevant legislation and documents, can be found at the links below. If you have any queries about the Code of Practice and/or Practice Guidance for Northern Ireland please contact:
