Guidance on safeguards and standard forms for businesses
In order to ensure that the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme is fair to businesses, it has been designed to include a number of safeguards. These are an appeal procedure, a 'right to reply' and an opportunity to request a re-visit when improvements have been made. There is also an 'opt in' form for 'exempt' businesses that supply consumers but have not been routinely given a food hygiene rating.
Information on the safeguards and standard forms are available at the links below.
Forms for local authority use only can be found via the link to the right.
