The Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006 and equivalent legislation in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (the Regulations) impose requirements on food businesses to ensure food is safe for human consumption. They simplify and consolidate existing European Union (EU) hygiene requirements in the UK, introducing new food management and registration requirements. A key requirement is for all food businesses to produce a written Food Safety Plan based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles. Other requirements include the registration of premises, adequate staff training, cleaning and maintenance regimes.
This factsheet explains what the Regulations cover, who they apply to, and what obligations the Regulations place on businesses. It also provides hints and tips and sources of further information.
