Businesses that receive low ratings of zero or one need to make urgent or major improvements to hygiene standards.

The local authority food safety officer has several enforcement options and provides advice and guidance to ensure these improvements are made.

The food safety manager will also tell the company how quickly these improvements need to be made and this will depend on the type of problem to be solved.

If the officer finds that a company’s hygiene standards are very poor and there is an imminent risk to public health, where food may be unfit for consumption, the officer should act to ensure consumers are protected.

This could result in part of the business being shut down or closed until it is safe.
