What paperwork do I need?

What paperwork do I need?

The law requires all food businesses to have knowledge and documents (paperwork) about the hazards (risks) in their business and controls of those risks. This is called Haccp (Hazard Analysis at Critical Control Points).
If you handle high risk foods such as meat you will need more paperwork than someone making cakes or selling vegetables.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has developed a pack to help some businesses.  This is the Safer Food Better Business pack. The following list shows the packs that are available. 

Caterers

Retailers/shops/local supermarkets

Indian, Pakistani & Sri Lanka (In English)

Chinese (In Cantonese)

Childminder

My diary has run out. What shall I do?
Either download the diary refill and print your own copies or buy a desk type diary and record your checks in there. Remember to do a Four weekly check once a month. You can also write your own checklists or records.

Low risk food businesses (including voluntary and charity)

Breckland has developed checklists for various types of food business. You may either download or request from the list below: from “ Further information-Food safety checklists”
These  should be used in conjunction with a diary or note of non-conformances. Your Food safety officer will advise you further when they inspect you.
