Detail

This guidance is intended for all inspectors conducting inspections that have been prioritised or brought forward because of a concern and must be used in conjunction with all other inspection guidance and documentation. These are inspections that arise from concerns or information that we risk assess and decide to carry out an inspection within five or 30 days. An inspection within five days is a priority inspection, and one within 30 days is a brought forward inspection. This guidance covers both types of inspection.
