Right of reply
Under Section 5 of the Food Hygiene Rating Act (Northern Ireland) 2016, you have a right of reply which may be published on the Food Hygiene Rating website.
The right of reply allows you to comment on the rating the food business receives. For example, a business may wish to publish information in relation to what they consider to be particular circumstances at the time of inspection that affected the rating. They might want to give an update on actions that have been taken following the inspection.
We will publish a business's right of reply online with the business's hygiene rating. However, we have a right to edit your comments or refuse to publish the comments if they contain offensive, defamatory, clearly inaccurate or irrelevant remarks.
Downloaded right of reply forms can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to:
