Catering/Food Business- Registration of premises that serve food

The majority of food businesses under the control of the Environmental Health Services (EHS) of the HSE do not require a licence - they merely have to notify the relevant EHS.
However, a small number of businesses dealing with food of animal origin are dealt with by the EHS and these require prior approval by the EHS before they can commence trading. It should be noted however, that this requirement is through Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine legislation.

CITES Import Permit
CITES Export Permit
CITES Re-export Certificate
CITES EU Trade Certificate
*CITES is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna

CITES is an international agreement between governments. 180 States or Parties are members of CITES (including all EU Member States).
Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. It covers approximately 35,000 species, which are listed in three Appendices, according to the degree of protection required.
All import, export, re-export and introduction from the sea of species covered by CITES, as well as certain regulated trade within the EU, must be authorised through a licensing system. Annually wildlife trade is very diverse and estimated to be worth billions of Euros. Trade ranges from live animals and plants to a vast array of wildlife products derived from them, including food products, exotic leather goods, wooden musical instruments, timber, tourist curios and medicines.
