The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS)

The FHRS is a score given to Food Business Operators (FBO) by the local Environmental Health officer (EHO) The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales and applies to restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways, hotels, supermarkets and other food shops.
When you register your Food or beverage business (you should do this at least 28 days before your start trading,) http://bit.ly/2bx6Ix5 you will be sent out a form that you will need to fill in to ‘risk rate’ your business. Once received by your local EHP they will then want to visit you, normally their first visit is an advisory one (however it is always best to check) this should help you to understand what you need to be safe and compliant and they will want to check all food handlers are trained in food hygiene.
When the EHP conducts a FHRS on your premises they are inspecting and auditing your processes and premises, structure, staff and Food Management system (HACCP) to ascertain if you reach standards. When scoring the EHP refers to a scoring matrix to ensure consistency in scores. The production, processing, distribution, retail, packaging and labelling of food stuffs are governed by a mass of laws, regulations, codes of practice and guidance http://bit.ly/1G52mVi

The display of the score is mandatory in Wales and Northern Ireland and I believe it is only a matter of time it will be mandatory here too.

If you are a Food Business Operator (FBO) ensure you obtain a 5*****rating to claim your complimentary 1 hour inspection click here for Chartered Institute of Environmental Health accredited Training courses visit: https://www.ludlowfoodhygienecentre.co.uk/course-dates/food-hygiene/ please comment and share.
