How to renew your food registration


It is your responsibility to ensure you renew your registration before it expires. You cannot renew an expired registration.

We will send you a renewal application form before your notice of registration expires - so it is important to let us know if your email or postal address changes.

If your registration expires, you need to re-register by lodging a new application and paying the full registration fees. Re-registering your business may impact your verification frequency. For more information on re-registering, email

If you continue to trade with an expired registration, the registration authority will consider legal action in the form of infringements or prosecution.

When you receive your renewal application, check the details and complete the form.

Your renewal letter will advise on how you can pay to renew your registration.

How to apply and pay


You can pay by Visa, MasterCard, Online EFTPOS or Account2Account (bank transfer).

A card payment  fee of 1.75 per cent applies for credit and debit card payments.

To pay online follow the instructions in the last page of your renewal letter.
