Key messages

  • Sometimes, the class of a business cannot be predetermined easily, or it does not fit into one of the predetermined classes.
  • The department’s business classification tool will help classify your business if it does not fit one of the predetermined classes.

Not all businesses can be easily classified. If a business has not been predetermined, the business classification tool will assist with determining your classification. The tool will also assist environmental health officers to be consistent when determining an appropriate business classification for a food premises.

The business classification tool is divided into four categories:

  • community group
  • retailer/service sector
  • warehouse/distributor
  • manufacturer.

Each category has specific questions that require a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response. This response will determine the business classification.
