Who checks for Food Safety Programs in a food business?

Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) will check a food business’ Food Safety Plan when performing an audit. EHOs will review the Food Safety Program and the records you keep as part of your program. If you are found to not be compliant with the legal requirements for a Food Safety Program and Food Safety Plan, you can face fines or punishment.
