Food Law Code of Practice (March 2021)

Officers should reflect on the level of reassurance provided by checks undertaken on the food safety management systems directly at an individual establishment via an independent third party as part of an assurance scheme which address applicable legislation. The confidence in management/control procedures score is not solely about documented procedures and their implementation. Factors that will influence the officer’s judgement include:

  • the ‘track record’ of the company, its willingness to act on previous advice and enforcement, and the complaint history
  • the attitude of the present management towards hygiene and food safety
  • hygiene and food safety knowledge, including hazard analysis/HACCP and the control of critical points
  • satisfactory food safety management-based procedures
