Enforcement of regulations on food standards, safety and hygiene is primarily the responsibility of local authorities, but the making of legislation in the UK is the function of central government and (until recently) Europe.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is the independent government agency responsible, amongst other issues, for enforcement support and advice. FSA also audit enforcement activity with respect to local authority food safety and standards controls.
