A review of confidence in management ratings for sites regulated by Argyll and Bute Council for both food law and health and safety law purposes identified 151 relevant sites. Ratings were strongly clustered around scores for the two food safety confidence ratings of “reasonable record of compliance” and “satisfactory record of compliance”. The coefficient of correlation between the two scores was 0.18. This study suggests that the food law confidence in management rating is a poor predictor of health and safety management performance. Reasons for this are proposed.
