Date of original text

The Regulation prescribes the procedures for the recognition and registration of food establishments in accordance with Article 31 of Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules; and Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific rules for the organisation of official controls on products of animal origin intended for human consumption. The Food and Veterinary Service shall commence the procedure for the recognition and registration of a food establishment after receipt of the submission (Annex 1) referred to in Paragraph 4 or 24 of this Regulation and the documents referred to in Paragraphs 4.1 and 24.1 if information regarding acceptance for operation of the relevant structure or group of premises has been registered in the State Immovable Property Cadastre Information System and the type of use of the structure or group of premises registered therein conforms to the foreseeable activity. If the same premises (territory) or equipment is to be used by several food establishments subject to recognition or registration, each establishment shall ensure an autonomous activity that is separated in time or space and that is confirmed by the relevant mutual contracts. The Service shall process personal data (given name, surname, personal identity number, address, telephone number, electronic mail address) in order to recognise or register a food establishment, to issue a recognition or registration certificate, and also to make changes in the register of objects under supervision and to contact a food establishment. Personal data shall be stored for five years after deletion of an establishment from the register of objects under supervision.
