Registration of businesses in the food sector

Update in progress

In order to guarantee the compliance of foodstuffs, as well as materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, with the national and European legislation and to allow the efficient organisation of official controls of food establishments, all operators in the food sector must be known by the competent authorities.

For this to happen, all operators must notify the activities of establishments under their responsibility to the Commissariat for Food Safety (Commissariat alimentaire).

They must notify the name of the establishment (e.g. name of the restaurant, name of the day care centre - "maison relais", name of the point of sale, etc.) and the address where the activities take place.

The indication of the address of a fiduciary which is hosting the registered office is not permitted.

In addition, the contact details and address of the food operator must be notified in order to designate a person responsible for the maintenance of regulatory food safety requirements, a recipient of official control reports and contact points for rapid alerts or food-related incidents, and materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.

Who is concerned

Each business or establishment (public or private, for profit or non-profit) active in the production, transformation or distribution of foodstuffs or materials and articles intended to come into contact with food must be registered with the Commissariat for Food Safety.

As a general rule, the activities listed concern all the businesses who are active in any of the steps related to the production, transformation and distribution of foodstuffs and materials and articles intended to come into contact with food (except for slaughterhouses or businesses active in the feed sector who are subject to other types of registration).

Example: grocery shops, restaurants, crèches, businesses in the packaging sector or active in the export or import of foodstuffs, producers of food packaging materials, etc.
