The Codes provide statutory guidance to local authorities and port health authorities on the approach they should take to regulate food businesses.
The FSA has reviewed and revised the Codes with the objective that delivery of food control activities by local authorities and port health authorities remains ‘effective, consistent, and proportionate’.
The key changes include:

The Food Standards Agency in Wales is still consulting on the proposed changes. The consultation in Wales closes on Thursday, 25 March 2021.
