Food establishments; application for EU approval for sprout producing establishments

Sprout producing establishments are subject to approval.

Description

The activity subject to authorisation may only be commenced after authorisation has been granted. The procedure is application-based. A site visit is carried out to verify that establishments meet the relevant hygiene requirements in order to ensure the protection of public health. The approval of the establishments should be subject to compliance with certain requirements in order to reduce the risk of contamination within the establishment where the sprouts are produced.

Approval also provides the establishment with the approval number required for intra-Community trade.

Prerequisites

Establishments shall be approved in accordance with Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 210/2013 and Article 6(3) of Regulation (EC) No 852/2004. Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 lays down general hygiene rules for food which food business operators must comply with, inter alia, during primary production and related operations.

The operator or the responsible person appointed by the operator must be of sufficiently good repute to run the establishment.

Procedure

The approval procedure begins with the submission of the documents to the locally competent district administrative authority (district office or independent city), which carries out a preliminary examination and forwards the application to the government. After the application has been submitted and the preliminary examination has been carried out, the government carries out a site inspection to check whether the relevant requirements of food law have been met in the individual case. With the approval, the establishment also receives the approval number required for intra-Community trade.

Deadlines

Without a licence, an activity requiring a licence may not be commenced.
