Food hygiene rating scheme

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will not be carrying out return visits for re-ratings.  

At this time we will consider the evidence you provide.  For businesses with a current rating of 0, 1 or 2 if after a remote assessment of evidence submitted we consider that the necessary improvements have been made, the FSA online record will be changed to show "awaiting inspection". 

A visit will be made when restrictions relax for the purposes of issuing a re-rating.  

We only deal with food premises based within Manchester City Council boundaries, if your query is about a food premise based outside these boundaries, please contact the Local Authority where the food premise is located.

You can use this form to:

  • request a revisit after score has been given
  • appeal against a score
  • right to reply (business owner can outline actions taken following the inspection)
  • request that we publish your new rating before the end of the appeal period
