Food Premises Registration:

However, any hirers renting our facilities on a regular basis where food handling is involved may be need to register with Environmental Health as a food business. Those hirers should contact Shared Regulatory Services (srs.wales) to discuss whether registration for their business would be required. Individuals or businesses using the hall facilities as a one off would not be required to register with Environmental Health.
