Your FAQ

Question: What does the local authority do to ensure ratings are issued fairly?

Answer: Food hygiene inspection rating consistency workshops have been held within the Isle of Wight Council and also with other local authorities to ensure that ratings are issued consistently between local authorities as well as between individual officers. Scores are also reviewed by senior officers before they are issued to ensure they accurately reflect the hygiene practices, structural conditions and hygiene management systems in place at the time of the inspection. - Related Link
