Your FAQ

Question: Is the scheme run in all parts of the UK?

Answer: The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme is a ‘national scheme’ run in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. A similar scheme is run in Scotland.
Each local authority can choose whether or not it wants to take part so the scheme is not running in all areas of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Some local authorities choose to run their own local schemes.
The FSA is working with local authorities to encourage as many of them as possible to run the ‘national scheme’ so you can compare hygiene ratings of food businesses in your local area and further away from home.
