ENFORCEMENT - Revised Food Safety Act 1990 Code of Practice for local authorities England published

The 1990 Food Safety Act Code of Practice for local authorities has been revised. The Code updates, consolidates and replaces the previous 20 separate Codes of Practice issued under the Food Safety Act 1990. The Code of Practice applies to England.

The Agency will keep the new Code under continuous review and feedback from authorities on its use would be helpful. A further review of the Code and Practice Guidance will be undertaken to address the need for any appropriate amendments resulting from the introduction of the new European Union food hygiene Regulations and Official Food and Feed Control Regulations in January 2006.

If you have any queries about the revised Code and/or Practice Guidance please e-mail the Enforcement mailbox at
