COVID-19: Book your booster vaccination ,  test regularly and follow new guidance

COVID Compliant Accreditation Scheme

Date updated: 6/25/2021

The City Corporation is continuing to run its COVID Compliant Accreditation Scheme that offers all City businesses a free verification assessment from our Environmental Health Officers.

This scheme is aimed at supporting businesses in their re-opening and reassuring customers that they have systems in place to minimise risks associated with coronavirus and that their premises are safe to visit.

All participating businesses need to do is submit details of their COVID-Secure systems including:

  • their current written COVID-Secure Risk Assessment
  • any internal COVID-19 related procedure notes such as cleaning schedules, etc.
  • records of staff training specifically on COVID-19 protection measures

An Environmental Health Officer will then contact the business to assess these measures and discuss the details of their systems.

Following this initial review, an officer will subsequently carry out an on-site verification visit at some point in the near future to confirm that the documented COVID-19 procedures are being implemented effectively in the business.

Businesses meeting the requirements will be provided with the scheme’s accreditation door / window decal stating that they are "COVID COMPLIANT".

If you are interested in becoming a member of the scheme, contact the DES food team for further information.


The scheme is being run in partnership with two other central London local authorities, Southwark and Camden, and may be extended further in future.
