In Germany, although there is a national food safety inspectorate, there’s no requirement for eateries to display the results, and no publicly accessible register.
FragDenStaat’s FOI campaign rallied members of the public to request food safety reports from their local authorities. It’s resulted in 100 court cases, and new legislation around food safety.
