Food Hygiene law requires certain food businesses who handle unprocessed products of animal origin to be approved by the Local Authority in which they are based.
If you operate premises within North Ayrshire which manufacture or handle any of the following products you should contact us to find out if your business requires to be approved:
Some premises will be exempt from the requirements.
If your business requires to be approved, we will send you the application form and discuss the requirements and the documentation that you require to submit with your application.
On receipt of your completed application form, Environmental Health will consider your submissions and thereafter contact you for further clarification or to arrange to inspect your premises and verify your Food Safety Management System.
Once your business is approved, or conditionally approved, you will be issued with a unique identification number with which all approved products must be labelled before being placed on the market for sale.
Food Standards Scotland maintains a list of approved premises in Scotland.
