You can submit a notification of temporary food product give-aways, sales, preparation or serving at market places or other locations. The notification duty also applies to sales and serving taking place from approved movable food premises.


The notification must be submitted no later than four (4) workdays prior to the initiation of the activities.

1. The Environment Services receives the notification.

3. The customer will be contacted if any additional information is required on any of the matters indicated on the notification. No separate decision will be made on the basis of the notification.
4. An inspection visit to the temporary sales premises may be executed, in particular if the sales take place at a large-scale public event. The purpose of the inspection is to ensure that the activities comply with the information indicated in the notification.
