Enforcement Food Law Enforcement Audit Checklist (Scotland) Mobile App
The Enforcement Food Law Enforcement Audit Checklist (Scotland) app allows auditors, or officials such as an inspector general's office, to review and audit a local authority's enforcement capabilities and opportunities related to food safety enforcement.
How does it work?
This includes checking if a local authority has adopted enforcement regulations, if the enforcement policy is written and publicly available, if the policy covers options or enforcement, circumstances when those options should be used, internal appeals mechanisms, and proportionate responses to enforcement based on risk, and other topics. Enforcement by a local authority's food law enforcement department is important as it can reduce cases of foodborne illness and food poisoning, however, an auditor should ensure that the enforcement procedures and policies are sound and even handed.
