Freedom of information request response - 06448
The enquiry relates to applications to be listed as an approved food establishment. These are establishments approved to handle, prepare or produce products of animal origin for which requirements are laid down in EC Regulation No 853/2004. This ‘listing’ process is a function of the local authority, and covers a range of meat, fish and shellfish, and animal produce establishments.
I would like to know the following:
How many applications to be listed as an approved food establishment has your authority refused since 1 January 2019?
- In the case of each refused application, what was the type(s) of product of animal origin to which the application related? (For example, fishery products, meat products, live bivalve molluscs, etc)
- In the case of each refused application, what was the nature of the activity/activities proposed at the establishment? (For example, distribution, wholesale market etc)
- In the case of each refused application, what was the stated reason for refusal?
I anticipate that the number of refusals in each local authority will be relatively small, and this information should hopefully be reasonably easy to collate.
We have not refused any approved premises applications.
