On 1st April 2020 the following local authority merger took place. This is represented in the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme open data as follows:
- Aylesbury Vale (local authority code 021)
- Chiltern (local authority code 022)
- South Buckinghamshire (local authority code 024) and
- Wycombe (local authority code 025)
...merged to become Buckinghamshire (local authority code 021).
Once the local authorities have merged their databases they will upload a single file, and establishments which were uploaded to the old accounts will change their FHRSID number.
All local authorities operating the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme and Food Hygiene Information Scheme can be found at https://ratings.food.gov.uk/authorities/xml This file will also be amended when the changes have been implemented.
