Register a Food Business (Food Premises)

Register a Food Business (Food Premises)

If you are due to open a new food business or take ownership of an existing business, it is a legal requirement for you to register with Environmental Health at least 28 days before opening or taking over.

Registration applies to most types of food premises used for storing, selling, distributing or preparing food.

Food premises include

  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Cafes
  • Shops
  • Staff Canteens
  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturers
  • Guest Houses
  • Delivery Vehicles
  • Market stalls
  • Mobile catering vans

Registration allows Environmental Health to keep an up to date list of all food premises within their area and is used to arrange a programme of routine inspections.

There is no charge for registering a food business and no renewal is required at any time other than to notify the Council of any significant changes to the business operation.
