A local council is required by law to inspect and grant permission for premises to handle, process and manufacture products of animal origin such as meat, dairy, egg or fish. This is called the process of approval and is displayed in the form of a food premises approval licence.

Food premises that fall under a need for a food premises approval licence includes restaurants, hotels, cafes, shops, supermarkets, staff canteens, kitchen in offices, warehouses, guest houses, delivery vehicles, buffet cars on trains, market stalls and hot dog and ice cream vans.
