Food premises registration

All new food businesses must register with us 28 days prior to opening. You should tell us about any changes to your food business as soon as they are made, this includes:

  • if you have taken over an existing business
  • if you change the name of your food business
  • the nature of your business changes significantly

Please complete and return a food premises registration form.

Inspection

We aim to inspect new food businesses within 28 days of opening. For certain low risk businesses, such as cake bakers, we may ask you to complete a questionnaire instead of inspecting your premises.
Remember, as an employer or self employed person, you must also comply with health and safety laws.

We can provide you with information on starting a new food business and can give advice prior to opening. You can also find advice for new food businesses on the Food Standards Agency website.
