Support Following Authority Intervention

The food hygiene rating scheme, commonly known as ‘Scores On The Doors’  is a system run by local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in partnership with the Food Standards Agency. A similar scheme operates in Scotland. 

Local authorities carry out inspections of food businesses to check that they meet the requirements of food hygiene law and based on the findings of the inspection the food business is given a score of 0 – 5; 0 being the lowest (non compliance) and 5 the highest. The score is published on the Food Standards Agencies website.

Businesses in England and Northern Ireland do not currently have to display their rating, however the situation in Wales is different. Food businesses In Wales that receive a new rating after 28 November 2013, must by law display a sticker showing their score in a prominent place e.g. front door, window etc.
