Our policies, plans and strategies - Environmental health service standards
|About this page||
The purpose of an inspection or visit initiated by the service is to check compliance with environmental health or licensing law. If an inspection service is delivered well, it can be helpful and practical in assisting you to comply with the law, without placing unnecessary burdens on you.
We work closely with a large number of businesses and we understand that the majority of businesses based in Leicestershire are honest, legitimate enterprises that operate within the law.
We are committed to working with compliant businesses to assure economic growth and to encourage non-compliant business to understand and meet regulatory requirements. Read business advice and information from the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Parnership Business Gateway.
