Food Hygiene Rating Scheme - information for business

Forms to request revisit, lodge an appeal or submit a right to reply comment:

There is no charge for a food hygiene inspection, revisit to check compliance with statutory contraventions, complaint investigation or sampling visit.

However from 1 April 2022, if a food business requests a re-inspection to attempt to improve its food hygiene rating score, there will be a charge of £160.
