Terms of award

           

A healthyliving award is granted subject to the following terms:

  • The award remains the property of the awarding body, which reserves the right to amend the award regulations and conditions as necessary.

  • The award is valid for two years. After this period the award will expire and the holder must apply for reassessment.

  • The regulations and conditions of the award must be maintained for the duration of the award period.

  • The awarding body may withdraw the award at any time if the regulations and conditions are not being met.

  • The award will be withdrawn if the caterer is found to breach the food hygiene requirements of the award.

  • The award holder must inform the awarding body if:

    • there is a change of owner or caterer.

    • the member of staff responsible for the healthyliving award leaves.

The award may be withdrawn if there is a change in any of these circumstances.

  • If the award is withdrawn the award holder must remove the award certificate and all promotional and marketing resources from the premises.

  • At the end of the award period the award holder must remove all promotion and marketing resources from the premises. The award certificate can remain on display.

  • At the end of the award period, or if the award is withdrawn, the award holder must remove any reference to the award which appears in advertising or business material.

  • Award holders must cooperate with the quality assurance procedures. Failure to comply may result in the removal of the award.

  • The award holder is responsible for reading and acknowledging the Information and Communication note issued with the starter pack.

  • The award charter must be displayed on the premises at all times.

  • NHS Health Scotland and the Scottish Government endorse the healthyliving award only and not the award holder; any advertising or publicity materials should reflect this.
