You are required to register or notify the Agency if you intend to operate a food business that falls under one of the following categories:
- located at a public hospital and prepares food for patients of that hospital
- dairy primary production business, a dairy processing business or a dairy transport business
- engaged in primary production of seafood or the manufacturing of seafood if that seafood includes bivalve molluscs.
Registration and notification of all other food businesses must be made to the local council in which that food business will operate.
The Agency will determine whether you need to submit a registration or notification. If the Agency determines that you are exempt from registration, then you will be required to submit a notification of your business details. Information on exempted food businesses can be found in the attached fact sheet.
