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 registration.

 

Renew your Food Act registration

The renewal of registration notices are emailed to businesses using our Health Manager online registration system.

All registered food businesses must renew their Food Act registration each year. We email businesses in mid-November with information on how to renew their Food Act Registration.

The business owner must log into the Health Manager online registration system to review and submit the renewal application. This will 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.

Any food business that fails to pay for their renewal is considered unregistered.

The base renewal fee includes up to five full time staff (including owners and proprietors). Businesses that employ more than five 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 two part time staff equates to one 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 - $832 plus $24.50 staffing fee (for each staff member over five)
  • Class 2 – Food Safety Program – FSP/FSS - $568 plus $24.50 staffing fee (for each staff member over five)
  • Class 3 – low-risk unpackaged foods, warehouses, distributors, greengrocer, sport club canteens - $352 plus $24.50 staffing fee (for each staff member over five)
