All businesses subject to a National Programme (all levels) have the right to choose their own verier. A verier is the
agency or person who will come and assess your business in ord
er to demonstrate compliance with the Food Act
2014 and Food Regulations 2015.
Registration Authority
Your food business must be registered in order to legally operate. Most commonly, your registration authority will be
your local council if your business operates solely within one district.
If your business operates over different council districts or operates from multiple sites, the Ministry for Primary
Industries (MPI) may instead be your registration authority. Check with your local council or MPI if you are unsure
who your registration authority should be.
Choosing a Verier
You have the choice of selecting which agency you want to undertake your verications. This may be your local
council should they hold recognition or an independent (third party) organisation. A list of all recognised agencies
can be found on MPI’s website:
www.foodsafety.govt.nz/registers-lists/food-act-2014-recognised-agencies/index.htm
Conicts of Interest
If any staff or contractors of the Council have been involved in the design of the customer’s food premises or procedures,
it cannot act as the customer’s verier. The Council aims to undertake the agreed services in an independent and
impartial manner at all times.
Template Food Control
Plans registered with MPI
Certain Template Food Control Plan operators can nominate their own verifier. This includes Template Food Control plan
businesses registered as a mobile business with the base in QLDC but operate selling food outside of our district. Also, If
you are operating a multi-site business using a template FCP, and have been required to register with MPI or another
authority because you also operate outside the QLDC area, you may still choose to use QLDC as your verifier or appoint
your own third party verifier.
If you have registered a template FCP (whether modified or not) with MPI for a business required to operate a custom
FCP, QLDC is not able to offer verification of custom FCPs.
Once you have chosen your verifier, you will need to inform your registration authority of your choice. Your verifier may
ask you to complete an agreement to officially nominate them as your verifier.
Should you have any questions about choosing a verifier, please contact either Queenstown Lakes District
Council or MPI on 0800 00 83 33.
