If you are planning to start a food business, you must register your premises at least 28 days before opening. This applies to most types of food business, including catering businesses run from home, and mobile or temporary premises such as stalls and vans. If you use two or more premises you will need to register all of them using our Food Registration Form (89kb).

If food premises are to be used by several catering businesses (for example a village hall or conference centre) the person who allows the premises to be used for this purpose is responsible for registering them. All food businesses are required to have a documented food safety management system based on the principles of HACCP.  Although this may sound onerous a small catering business can get a free guidance pack called Safer Food and Better Business from the Food Standards Agency.

If you have a mobile catering vehicle our Mobile Catering Guide (220kb) will help to provide you with the legal requirement you must comply with and also details advice and good practice measures.

In partnership with the Food Standards Agency, we launched the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in April 2011, where a food hygiene rating for a food premises is established following an inspection and taking into account observations and discussions made during the visit.

Do you have a food hygiene rating of 3 or more?

If so you may be eligible to join the “Heart of Derbyshire” scheme. This is a scheme which is operated by Derbyshire County Council together with Bolsover District Council that rewards you for offering your customers ‘healthier’ food.

For information about the scheme please visit the Heart of Derbyshire section of the Derbyshire County Council website or telephone 01629 536166.

The Gambling Bill modernises the law on gambling and provides for a unified regulator for gambling, the Gambling Commission. It introduces three licensing objectives which underpin the functions of the Commission and the Council.

There are three types of licence:

  1. An Operator Licence, concerned with the management and conduct of gambling, issued and regulated by the Commission
  2. A Personal Licence, for persons with key operational functions connected with the gambling business, issued and regulated by the Commission
  3. A Premises Licence, for the property where the gambling takes place, issued and regulated by the Council.

The Act also regulates amusement with prizes machines and lotteries. Information on current applications or licensed premises and conditions is available by searching the online public register.

Further information, is available from the Gambling Commission websites.

The UK Government passed the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 with the intention of regulating scrap metal dealers, collectors and motor salvage operators. The Act replaced all of the existing legislation for motor salvage operators and scrap metal dealers.

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into force on 1 October 2013. Under the new Act there are two types of licence:

  1. Site Licence (381kb) – this will be required where a business is carried on as a scrap metal dealer at a premises. A site manager will be required to be named for each site. The licensee will then be permitted to operate from that site as a scrap metal dealer including transporting to and from those sites from any local authority area. We have published our list of scrap sites (96kb).
  2. Collector’s Licence (381kb) – this authorises the licensee to operate as a mobile collector in the area of the issuing local authority permitting them to collect scrap metal as appropriate. This includes commercial as well as domestic scrap metal. If a mobile collector operates within more than one local authority’s district, a licence will be required for each authority that (s)he operates in. We have published our list of scrap collectors (92kb).

The implementation timetable is as follows:-

  • The parts of the Act creating an offence of carrying on a business as a scrap metal dealer unless authorised by a licence and the transitional provisions for existing registered collectors/dealers to apply for a new licence will come into force on the 1st October 2013.
  • The parts of the Act which bring into force other provisions will come into force on the 1st December 2013.

In order to apply for a licence under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 persons will be required to make an application to the council. The application form should be accompanied by the following:

  • The relevant fee.
  • A basic DBS check for every person named in the application, which is less than 3 months from the date of issue (see information below). 
  • A passport style photograph of every person named on the application (If applying for a collectors).

All applicants and named persons will be required to prove their identity by means of photographic identification, e.g. a passport or photo card driving licence and a utility bill. It is therefore necessary that your application is given to the licensing team in person. Your identity and your DBS certificate will be checked and copied, then immediately returned to you. Please discuss these requirements with a licensing officer if you are unsure what to bring in with your application.

Exemptions

If scrap metal is a by-product of your business you may be exempt from the need to be licensed, it will be necessary for you to prove the proportion of your business that consists of dealing in scrap metal.

Mobile Collectors

Mobile Collectors who work in different council areas will have to apply for a collectors licence in each of those areas. You must contact the relevant council to obtain an application form.

Every person working on a vehicle collecting scrap metal must be licensed unless they are properly employed by a business licensed for a site or as a collector. 

DBS Certificate

Before you apply, you and every person listed on the application form, need to obtain a Basic Disclosure Certificate from Disclosure Scotland.
