Advice to Business Food Law Enforcement Protocols (Scotland) Mobile App
The Advice to Business Food Law Enforcement Protocols (Scotland) is an app that evaluates if a Local Authority is working with businesses to help them comply with food and feeding stuffs legislation.
How does it work?
Legislation passed for food safety programs relating to food hygiene must have buy-in from impacted businesses in the food industry. This audit checks if a Local Authority's Food Law Enforcement Agency is providing advice such as training courses/seminars on food and beverage safety and hygiene; on the spot advice during routine visits and inspections; providing advice lines; distributing informational sheets to businesses; responding to queries and questions; and maintaining dialogue with local businesses concerning food safety. Proper advice can ensure that businesses operate with the health and safety of the local community in mind when approaching issues concerning food hygiene and regulations concerning food safety.
These protocols should be used for full audits of local authority's food law enforcement and guidance services. Additional protocols have been developed specifically for authorities with imported food control responsibilities (products not of animal origin) at points of entry into Scotland's sea and air ports.
