HYGIENE - Update on scores on the doors

The Food Standards Agency has today published details of the first meetings of the recently established Working Groups of the UK-wide Scores on the Doors Steering Group, which is overseeing the development of the national six-tier scores on the doors scheme (and the two-tier scheme in Scotland).

One of the Working Groups is considering the scope of the scheme and exemptions to this, as well as 'start-up' issues for local authorities. The other is considering the scoring system that will underpin the scheme and also the safeguards necessary to ensure businesses are treated fairly. Both Groups held their first meetings in May and you can see the draft minutes of these meetings as well as details of each Group's membership, terms of reference and work programme at the link below. The next meetings of the Working Groups and the main Steering Group are planned for July and the agendas and papers for these will be published in due course.
