The most recent audits for FSA approved meat establishments are published on the Food Standards Agency Open Data for England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The supporting metadata for the audits can be found below.
These are as issued to the food business operator, but we have taken out potentially sensitive information (such as personal details) and detailed technical information.
We have listed establishments by their approval number, name and type (red or white meat slaughterhouse, red or white meat cutting plant or approved game handling establishment), their town, county and country.
The links below will take you to separate Excel worksheets. You will need to enable the macros in order to open them. Instructions are in the worksheets. Clicking on the links in the final column of the worksheets will take you to the individual audit report for the selected establishment.
We update the audit reports on the FSA website on a monthly basis (typically towards the end of each month). This means we replace establishments’ audit reports with the most recent audit reports and the frequency we do this for an individual establishment depends on how often that establishment is inspected during the year. Food business operators may appeal audit findings via a two stage process. They have up to 14 days to appeal an audit at the stage 1 appeals process following receipt of an audit report and 7 days should they disagree with the FSA investigating Officers decision and wish to appeal at stage 2 which is investigated by an independent investigator. FBOs can only request a Stage 2 appeal following two successive audits which have been appealed at stage 1 and the FBO is not satisfied with the outcome. Only the second successive audit qualifies for a stage 2 appeal review. The FSA won’t publish an audit report on the website before this time has passed and the audit finalised.
