Regulation 6 – Food Safety & Hygiene

Q.1. Guidance is sought on implementing the Food Waste collections in kitchens where hygiene standards and food safety are paramount, particularly in relation to the role of the Environmental Health Officers.

Answer: In accordance with Regulation 6, food safety and hygiene standards and obligations must take priority over the general requirements of the Food Waste Regulations. Accordingly, the Environmental Health Officers are best placed to provide guidance to individual premises on the appropriate measures to implement the food waste management requirements without detriment to food safety and hygiene standards.
