Request a food hygiene re-visit for your business

As the food business operator of the establishment you have a right to request a re-visit for the purposes of re-rating if you have taken action to rectify the non-compliances identified at the time of inspection.

We make a charge for this service of £191. The re-visit will be carried out within three months of the receipt of your request and payment of the fee. There is no limit on the number of requests you may make, but the fee will apply for each request.

You can make your request at any time after the statutory inspection provided that you have made the required improvements.

You must provide details of the improvements made with your request, including supporting evidence where appropriate. If we consider that you have provided sufficient evidence that the required improvements have been made, an unannounced visit will take place.

The local authority officer will give you a ‘new’ food hygiene rating based on the level of compliance that is found at the time of the re-visit - you should be aware that your rating could go up, down or remain the same.
