The Food Act 1984 requires all businesses that handle, prepare, package, store, serve, supply and repackage food to be registered with their local council.
The type of registration that is required for your business will depend on the nature of your food business, what type of food you are handling and to whom the food is being served or sold.
How to register
What happens next?
After your application is submitted, there are a few more steps that must be taken before your registration can be confirmed.
Council assesses your application
After your application is received and the application fee has been paid, an Environmental Health Officer will review the submitted documents.
An Environmental Health Officer will contact you to arrange an appointment to meet onsite and conduct a risk assessment. A report will then be issued listing any non-conformances.
After any non-conformances have been attended to, an Environmental Health Officer will attend to conduct a final inspection.
Certificate of Registration
Following the final inspection, a Certificate of Registration will be issued.
