UK food hygiene regulations do not require you to have an independent food hygiene audit by a food hygiene auditor. However your business will be inspected by an enforcement officer from your local environmental health department. A food hygiene audit alerts you to what you need to comply with food hygiene regulations and so avoid costly legal action being taken against you.
About our food hygiene audits
Your food hygiene auditor will conduct an inspection of your food premises to ensure they meet food hygiene regulations and your HACCP plan (FSMS) is working. Our food safety consultants have extensive enforcement experience so recognise situations when EHOs will and won’t take legal action so can ensure that you prioritise your expenditure.
Food hygiene audits and FHRS
Your food hygiene auditor predicts the likely score on your next food hygiene rating certificate and details what you need to do to achieve 5. When you are inspected by an enforcement officer they will check how you verify that your FSMS (food safety management system) is working. The fact that you are being independently audited should improve the ‘confidence in management’ section of your food hygiene rating score.
