New Business Food Safety and Hygiene Questionnaire

New food businesses need to complete this questionnaire in order to be risk assessed for routine inspections from Environmental Health.

East Herts are committed to delivering a quality service which helps business within the district while at the same time protecting the health and welfare of all of those who live and work here. 

Completing this questionnaire will help us to achieve this and prioritise your business with regard to routine inspections. If your business is lower-risk, such as a cupcake maker, you will not be inspected as quickly or frequently as a higher-risk business that is preparing foods, such as a restaurant. 

More information for new food business operators can be found on the New Food Businesses page

Before you fill out the form, please check that East Herts is your local authority by using the Find your local council page on Gov.uk.
