Food Hygiene Rating Scheme - Right to Reply Form

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme helps you choose where to eat out or shop for food. The scheme gives you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels, and other places you like to go to eat out, as well as supermarkets and other food shops.

As the food business operator of the establishment you have a 'right to reply' in respect of the food hygiene rating given following your inspection.

The purpose is to enable you to give an explanation of subsequent actions that have been taken to make the required improvements as detailed in the inspection letter, or to explain mitigation for the circumstances at the time of the inspection. It is NOT for making complaints or criticising the scheme or food safety officer.

If you wish to use this 'right to reply', please fill in the following form. Your comments will be reviewed by the food safety officer and may be edited in order to remove offensive or defamatory remarks before being published online and displayed together with your food hygiene ratings on the Food Standards Agency (this link opens in a new window)
