Renewing your food registration certificate

Food registration certificates need to be renewed before your current registration expires. We'll email you a form to complete.

When to renew your food registration certificate

Your food registration certificate needs to be renewed before it expires – every year if you're on a food control plan, or every second year if you're on a national programme. Check the certificate to find your expiry date.

How to renew your certificate

We'll send you an application form and invoice by email before your registration expires.

If you have a grease trap, your annual grease trap fee will be included in the renewal invoice.
