Apply for a Certificate of Registration
If you want to sell food, you’ll need to apply for a Certificate of Registration.
Food sellers include restaurants, takeaway premises, food stall operators and hawkers.
You can apply for a Certificate of Registration by printing out a form and posting it to our Public Health team.
Have these things on hand to make applying easier:
- your email address
- written permission from the premises owner or event organiser to trade if you are a mobile vendor or food stall owner
- digital copies of your staff's Food Hygiene Training Certificates.
