Food safety inspections

If you run a business that makes or prepares food, you must register with us. We will inspect your premises to make sure you are following food law.

The frequency of these inspections is determined following a risk assessment by us.

If a business fails to meet the required standards, we can serve a notice requiring the proprietor to take action to ensure that the premises comply with the standard.

We may also serve a notice which prevents the use of the premises or part of the premises.

Depending on the circumstances we may also submit a report to the procurator fiscal.
