Food Premises Registration

Summary

To store, prepare, distribute or sell food on premises within the River Tees Port Health Authority boundary, you need to be registered with River Tees Port Health Authority. Premises include restaurants, cafes, hotels, shops, canteens, market stalls, mobile catering vans and food delivery vans.

Some manufacturers handling products of animal origin may need to be approved by River Tees Port Health Authority, rather than registered. If you are uncertain whether your business needs to be approved or registered, contact us using the contact details below.

Regulation Summary

The regulation relating to the registration of food premises is Commission Regulation (EC) No 852/2004

Will Tacit Consent Apply

Yes. This means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from us within 21 days.

Fees

There are no fees associated with this registration.

How to Apply

You need to apply on line following the link here.

If there is a reason you cannot apply on line, please contact us on 01287 612406.

Consumer Complaint

We would always advise that in the event of a complaint, the first contact is made with the trader by you – preferably in the form of a letter (with proof of purchase). If that has not worked, and you are located within the UK, Citizens Advice will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
