In FoodDocs, submitting an activity licence and notification of economic activity is fast and convenient

Enterprises must notify the authorities or apply for a licence before starting the food handling and selling. In FoodDocs, you can conveniently, easily and quickly fill in the activity licence or notification of economic activity and send it straight to The Veterinary and Food Board (VFB) with your food safety plan.

Saves time and nerves

Since the food handler must have a food safety plan before submitting the activity licence or notification of economic activity, the program generates the necessary documents, based on the information on your food safety plan, automatically.

The FoodDocs users do not need to fill in anything twice for the activity licence or notification of economic activity – the program tells which one you need and adds the necessary documents from the food safety plan automatically. The user only needs to fill in the enterprises’ and the business place’s information and upload some documents.

The fact that you can look the examples of all the needed documents in the program adds even more comfort. Among other things, you can find the examples for hygiene training plan and cleaning, pests and waste plans. Thus, the applicant can be sure that their documents meet the requirements.

In FoodDocs, there is also a unique opportunity to fill the activity licence or notification of economic activity in Estonian, Russian, English, Ukrainian or German. The program will translate the application, with the correct terminology, to Estonian – just like the food safety plan – and will be ready to be sent to the authorities.

After submitting the activity licence or notification of economic activity, the program also lets you know, if you can start the activity right away or if you need to wait for the officials inspection.
