Frequently Asked Questions


The 2005 Food Hygiene Regulations (Northern Ireland) apply to all food businesses.  For the purpose of the regulations “Food  Business” means any undertaking carrying out any or all of the following operations, namely, Preparation, processing, manufacturing, packaging, storing, transportation, distribution, handling or offering for sale or supply of food.

Any premises used by food premises should comply with Regulation No. 852/2004.  This regulation states that windows and other openings (e.g.doors) which can be opened to the outside environment must where necessary be fitted with “Insect proof screens” which can be easily removed for cleaning.  Where unscreened open windows would result in the contamination of foodstuffs they must remain closed and fixed during food production.

It falls upon the Environmental Health Office (EHO) to enforce the Food Hygiene Regulations.  When their officers are inspecting food premises they will be checking to ensure suitable insect proof screens have been fitted where necessary.
