How to do a compliance check: compliance check series of factsheets: when to issue CC/FS3 visits - by agreement or with advance notice
Most of our visits to business premises will be by agreement or with advance notice.
Factsheet CC/FS3 tells the person:
- why we visit business premises
- about the visit
- about their rights.
You must issue a copy of factsheet CC/FS3 when you write to tell the person that you intend to visit them, see CH253000.
You must not use factsheet CC/FS3 if:
- you are carrying out an unannounced inspection. Instead you must use either factsheet CC/FS4 (GOV.UK) Unannounced visits for inspections, see CH202150, or factsheet CC/FS5 (GOV.UK) Unannounced visits for inspections approved by the tribunal, see CH202175.
- you are using Excise powers under CEMA79. The factsheet to use when carrying out checks under CEMA79 is factsheet CC/FS16 Excise visits, see CH202450.
