Applying for a Registration or Notification

When signing in for the first time, you will be directed to an application for registration or notification.

You will need to enter:

  • your organisation type and proprietor details
  • the address of your Principal Premises
  • details on each of your temporary or mobile food premises
  • descriptions of the types of food prepared and sold at each of your premises, and the methods of preparation
  • the type of Food Safety Program in use (where applicable).

During the application process you’ll be informed of:

  • the classification level of each of your premises (either Class 2, 3a, 3 or 4)
  • your allocated registering council. You should make a note of this.

Once your application is complete, you will be able to click the ‘Submit application to council’ button.

Your application will be sent to your primary (registering) council for review. If you have any questions relating to the application, please contact that council.

Remember: You can select ‘Save’ at any point during the application and the details you have completed will be saved in a Draft version of the application. You can find the Draft application in your Applications list (see guidance on portal navigation). The Draft application can be resumed at any time and submitted to the registering council.

You can check the status of the application at any time in your Applications list (see guidance on application statuses).

You will be notified by email when the application is progressed or when a Registration or Notification certificate has been issued to you.

Once a Registration or Notification is granted by council:

  • your portal Overview screen will display details of the Registration/Notification
  • your Premises list will show the premises included
  • you will be able to download your Registration/Notification certificate
  • you will be able to apply for Statements of Trade (see guidance on Statements of Trade).
