(d)such other information as may be prescribed.
(4)A food hygiene rating ceases to be valid in the following cases—
(a)when an operator of an establishment has received notification of a new food hygiene rating and—
(i)the period of 21 days for an appeal against the new food hygiene rating has expired, or
(ii)if an appeal has been made, the appeal has been determined and the operator has received notification of the outcome;
(b)when there has been a transfer of ownership of an establishment or an establishment has ceased trading.
