Food business premises registration

Every business engaged in the storage, preparation and/or sale of food (this includes 'wet' pubs and any social media sales of sweets etc) is required to register with the local authority at least 28 days before it is due to open. To register, you should complete the online form

New owners of businesses and transfers of ownership MUST update their registration via this online form. This is a legal requirement.

Registration can be completed on a smartphone or any device with internet access.

If you have any questions or have problems with internet access, please call 01744 676299 or email environmentalhealth@sthelens.gov.uk 

Our team are happy to help with advice, preparing your business for opening and help with design requirements.

Once registered, the Food Standards Agency will send you further information and guidance.

We ask ALL businesses to complete the free allergen training available on the Food Standards Agency website.
