Food Safety update for childminders
August 13, 2020
The Food Standards Agency have asked Local Authorities to include childminders in their food hygiene inspection programme. Historically they have not carried out inspections due to the low risk nature of most food provision, but they have been asked to change this. Because of covid the LA have had to amend their inspection protocol and avoid carrying out physical inspection visits where possible, so self-assessment forms have been used to establish a risk rating for the businesses.
If you receive a self-assessment request please complete the form and return it to the food safety team for their records. The form reflects the Safer Food Better Business document that we recommend you use as your Food Safety Management System.
