Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has today published Self-Assessment tools for food businesses and food retail establishments.

The Self-Assessment tools provide a practical toolkit for food businesses and food retail establishments in maintaining internal audit records to demonstrate ongoing compliance with COVID-19 protective measures. 

Use of these will allow businesses to demonstrate that they are following the measures required and can help in providing assurance to regulators and potentially assist in IMT discussions in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak.


The tools have been developed with regulators, business representatives and trade unions and supports the Scottish Governments COVID-19 Strategic Framework and their COVID-19 Safety and Compliance Programme.


The FSS COVID-19 guidance package has been updated to reflect this publication.
