Introduction of Food Hygiene Rating Charges for Rescoring Revisits

The Food Standards Agency enables local authorities to charge food businesses for revisits where they wish to have a rescore to improve their Food Hygiene Rating score. This is a commercial not a public health or regulatory enforcement decision. There are clear guidelines that the officers have to follow when considering the revisit which include the time period to undertake the revisit.

As such requests will have an impact on the workload of the service there is a justifiable reason to consider charging the business. The charge set has been agreed by the Fees and Charges Committee and covers the officer time and administration of the process.
