Closure Orders

The FSAI and food inspectors have certain powers under food law to close a food business down or stop it handling, preparing or selling a food if the premises is not hygienic, if they are not complying with food law or if there is a risk to public health.

These powers ensure that consumer health is protected.

Food businesses that are served with a Closure Order, an Improvement Order or a Prohibition Order are listed on our website. Food businesses that have been prosecuted are also listed.

See our Enforcements section for Enforcement Orders and Prosecutions issued on premises.

These include

  • Closure Orders
