Apply to Register a Food Business Establishment

Before You Begin

(Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004 in the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, Article 6(2)) 

This form should be completed by food business operators in respect of new food business establishments and submitted to Cherwell District Council 28 days before commencing food operations. On the basis of the activities carried out, certain food business establishments are required to be APPROVED rather than REGISTERED. If you are unsure whether any aspect of your food operations would require your establishment to be approved, please contact the Environmental Health Team at Cherwell District Council on 01295 227990 for guidance.


Please note: You have 10 minutes to complete each page. If you feel you need longer than this, please write your answers in a separate document, then copy and paste this into the form. This is to prevent any information being lost during the form completion.
