Notes for businesses

 As the operator of a food business you have a right, under section 12 of the Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Act 2013, to request at any time, an inspection for the purposes of re-rating, provided that you have paid the reasonable costs (£160) of the re-rating in accordance with Section 13 of the Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Act 2013 (unless the food authority has not required payment of those costs in advance as provided for in section 12(6) of the Act, in which case the costs may be paid after the re-rating inspection has been completed) and the following conditions have been met:

  1. any appeal against the current food hygiene rating has been determined;
  2. you have notified the food authority of improvements made to hygiene standards at the establishment;
  3. the food authority considers it reasonable to further inspect and assess the establishment in view of the improvements said to have made;
  4. the current food hygiene rating sticker is displayed at your establishment in accordance with the requirement of Section 7 of the Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Act 2013 and regulation 9 of the Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Regulation 2013;
  5. you have agreed to ensure that the food authority will be given access to carry out an inspection of the establishment for the purpose of re-rating.

The local authority officer will give you a food hygiene rating based on the level of compliance that is found at the time of the re-visit - you should be aware that your rating could go up, down or stay the same.

The re-rating visit will take place within 3 months of the request being made, and will usually be made without prior notification.
