Renew your business registrations

Renew your food or public health business registration

All registered food businesses must renew their Food Act registration each year. Similarly all registered public health businesses must renew their Public Health and Wellbeing Act Food registration.

 

Renew your Food Act registration

The renewal of registration notices will be emailed to businesses using our new Health Manager online registration system.

All registered food businesses must renew their Food Act registration each year. We mail out renewal invoices in mid-November.

The business owner must inform us if details have changed in the last 12 months. Once your renewal payment has been processed, the business will be issued with a certificate for the next year's registration.

From 31 December, any food business that fails to pay for their renewal is considered unregistered.

The base renewal fee includes up to 5 full time staff (including owners and proprietors). Businesses that employ more than 5 employees must pay a staff fee, which is calculated on the number of part time and full time staff employed. For the purpose of the calculation 2 part time staff equates to 1 full time staff member. The staffing fee exists because larger businesses take longer to inspect than smaller ones.

  • Class 1 - Independent Food Safety Program third-party audited - $820 plus $24 staffing fee (for each staff member over 5)
  • Class 2 – Food Safety Program – FSP/FSS - $558 plus $24 staffing fee (for each staff member over 5)
  • Class 3 – low-risk unpackaged foods, warehouses, distributors, greengrocer, sport club canteens - $345 plus $24 staffing fee (for each staff member over 5)

 

Renew your Public Health and Wellbeing Act registration

The business owner must inform us if details have changed in the last 12 months. Once renewal payment is processed a certificate will be mailed for the next registration year.

From 31 December, any public health and wellbeing business that fails to pay for their renewal is considered unregistered.
