The aides memoire are mainly intended for use by food law enforcement officers carrying out hygiene inspections of approved premises, but are also of interest to manufacturers and retailers of approved foods and products.
The FSA has developed the guidance in response to the findings of the Directorate General for Health and Food (formerly the Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) and the FSA’s own Local Authority Audit Team.
As part of the process we would now like to invite comments from all local authority colleagues, particularly on the practicality and functionality of the forms. We would like to thank those local authorities who have contributed to reviewing existing aides.
During their development we have not identified any major impacts to industry and consequently not produced an impact assessment - however, you are invited to comment on their impact.
