Codes of Practice

Raising standards within the catering industry




NCASS has published several codes of practice because we are serious about raising standards within an industry where risks and hazards are part and parcel of working life.

We actively promote our codes of practice to caterers and engineers to increase safety within the industry, and invite you to do the same. Take a look at the sorts of information and guidance that we offer below.

Codes of practice for caterers

  • The NCASS Code of Practice for Mobile Catering

Including trailers, trucks, marquees, tents, market stalls, baked potato ovens, BBQs, spit roasts and ice cream vans.

This code of practice is a set of guidelines based on current legislation and best practice. We include a copy within every mobile catering member's due diligence system so that they can always refer to it and know how to safely set up and run their business. > Find out more about its contents here

  • Code of Practice for Static Site Catering

Including take aways, fish and chips, sandwich bars, restaurants, buffet caterers, cafes, guest houses, public houses and hotels.

The code of practice for static site caterers has been developed through our wide experience within the industry and builds on many topics like legal regulations, correct procedures, incorrect procedures and good practice. A copy of the code is included in all static site catering members' due diligence systems. > Find out more about its contents here


Gas

  • Guidance for the installation of LPG and LPG fired equipment in catering trailers, converted vehicles, portable kitchens, carts, trolleys and bikes

  • Guidance for the installation of LPG and LPG fired equipment in tented structures, stalls and gazebos

At NCASS we work with Gas Safe engineers to help provide caterers with reliable tradesmen who will be able to meet their LPG requirements. We insist that all of our engineer members read, accept and adhere to our LPG guidelines to help ensure that they work to best practice and keep the public as safe as possible.


Manufacturing

  • The NCASS Code of Practice for Catering Unit Manufacturers

Including design, manufacture, fit-out, sale of catering trailers, equipment and conversions or mobile catering trailers and vans.

This code of practice is a voluntarily accepted document for manufacturers, based on current legislation and good practice. Its ultimate aim is to protect the purchasers of such units and to eliminate poor quality design and build from the industry.

When a manufacturer or convertor can prove their adherence to this code of practice, they are more likely to be able to become an NCASS approved supplier.
