Fermanagh District Council was the first local authority in Northern Ireland to sign up to the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) national scheme. The Scheme in Fermanagh was formally launched on the 1 December 2010.
Run in partnership with the FSA, The food hygiene rating scheme (FHRS), will replace all the different schemes that were used across the UK and provide consumers with a single, easy to understand scheme. The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme has already won broad acceptance from local authorities, the catering industry, trade associations and consumer groups.
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme rates restaurants and other places that sell food on their hygiene standards, based on inspections carried out by Fermanagh District Council. These ratings are available for everyone to see.
The national scheme, developed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in partnership with local authorities, rates food outlets on a scale ranging from zero (meaning ‘urgent improvement necessary’) to a top rating of five (‘excellent’).
There are many ways of checking the ratings of local eateries. You can check the rating online, via the free phone app, or look for the distinctive green and black rating sticker that businesses are encouraged to display.
There is additional guidance for food businesses available. This would include information on the appeals process, downloadable forms, etc.

The food hygiene rating scheme is not an endorsement of current standards but merely reflects the score we awarded a premises at the time of their inspection. Nevertheless, we try very hard to make sure the information available on these pages is correct. The food hygiene rating scheme adheres to the FSA’s brand standard.
Following an inspection it may take up to 28 days for the new rating to appear on our website.
