Online Application for Food Premises Registration
To store, prepare, distribute or sell food on
premises you need to be registered with the local authority.
Premises include restaurants, cafes, hotels, shops, canteens,
market stalls, mobile catering vans and food delivery vans.
Some manufacturers handling products of animal
origin may need to be approved by the local authority or the Meat
Hygiene Service, rather than registered. If you are uncertain
whether your business needs to be approved or registered and your
business is within the Neath Port Talbot Borough,
please contact the Food Safety Section on 01639 685678 /
No provision in legislation

Will Tacit Consent Apply?
Yes. This means that you will be able to act
as though your application is granted if you have not heard from
the local authority by the end of the target completion period
No. It is in the public interest that the
authority must process your application before it can be granted.
If you have not heard from the local authority within a
reasonable period, please contact the Food Safety Section on 01639
685678 / 685679. You can do this online if you
applied through the UK Welcomes service or use the contact

We would always advise that in the event of a
complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you -
preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If
that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct will give
you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
E.g. about noise, pollution, etc. Also
should one licence holder complain about another.
