Food Premises Registration

If you operate a food business in Argyll and Bute, have recently taken over an existing business or wish to start a new business, it is a legal requirement for you to register with the Environmental Health Service at least 28 days before you intend to open. This registration is free of charge and can be done by completing a food premises registration application form.


You do not require permission to open but you must have registered with the Council's Environmental Health Service at least 28 days prior to opening.
You are advised to contact the service to ensure that your business is compliant with the appropriate food legislation and to receive advice and support.
