Registration of Food Businesses

All businesses selling "potentially hazardous" food, or food that is likely to become unsafe if not kept under temperature control, must be registered with Council. Any food businesses that are selling food which is not potentially hazardous need only notify Council that they are doing so.

To register your food business, print an application form, complete it and return it to Clarence City Council in person or post it to Clarence City Council, PO Box 96, Rosny Park 7018

An Environmental Health Officer will contact you regarding the registration process.

You must have a Certificate of Registration of a Food Business from the Council before you can commence selling potentially hazardous food.

Registration of Food Businesses expires on 30 June each year. Council will send a renewal form to all existing food businesses in Clarence before this date.
