Register notification

The Finnish Food Act (23/2006) is also partially applied to materials and articles that come into contact with food. According to Section 21a, food contact material operators (manufacturers, importers, suppliers/wholesalers) must notify the food authority about their operations. The notification is given with a form provided by the municipal authority.

If the operator has business in several locations, the notification shall be sent separately to each municipal food authority.

You can find the contact information of your local food authority at the Finnish Food Authority website: https://www.ruokavirasto.fi/en/private-persons/information-on-food/contact-food-control-authority/
