The Ballarat City Council recognises current Food Act registrations of businesses from other Victorian municipalities when attending events in Ballarat.

Operation under these provisions is dependent upon the food business providing notification of their intention to sell food in the City of Ballarat, in this case at Smart Building and Living Expo in February 2017, and demonstrating that they have a current Food Act registration in their own municipality by providing copies to the Environmental Health Unit.

These provisions apply to Victorian food businesses only. Any interstate food business intending to sell food at must apply for a one-off registration which requires completion of a ‘Food Act Application Form’ and payment of a registration fee, which can be completed by contacting the Environmental Health Unit on (03) 5320 5702, after which time they will be issued with a Food Act registration certificate.
Council’s Authorised Officers will be conducting random inspections throughout this event to check compliance with these provisions.

Any business who fails to demonstrate they have a current Food Act registration by producing it on-site upon request, will be considered to be operating an unregistered food premises and as such will be required to cease providing food for sale immediately.

Please note, if your business sells pre-packaged, low risk, shelf-stable food only (eg: cans of drink, packaged confectionary and no tastings are provided), registration is not required and notification of your intention to sell in Ballarat is only required once.

  • Should you be unsure about any of the above requirements, please contact Council’s Environmental Health Unit on (03) 5320 5702 prior to the event to discuss.
