Food Safety Regulations

Food Safety Regulations

Who the rules apply to

These two sets of Regulations apply to all types of food and food businesses, but they do not cover primary production or food prepared in the home for domestic purposes. The Regulations also cover some non-commercial activities, such as charity fundraising events.

Some businesses - generally manufacturers of products of animal origin, such as diaries or wholesale fish markets - must follow product-specific regulations. Consult your local environmental health officer for more information. The proprietor of every food business is responsible for ensuring that their business complies with the relavant legislation.
