Approved premises

Our verification, audit and meat inspection services protect public and animal health and welfare. We carry out these services in approved slaughterhouses, game handling establishments and cutting plants. The requirements for this are laid down in Regulation (EC) 853/2004.

Member states are required to publish lists of these establishments under sixteen separate sections each corresponding to a different food sector.

These sections are set out below. Under each section you will find the lists of that type of establishment for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.


* Please note that where an approval number is shown on one of these lists without a two-letter prefix, that establishment is approved by the Food Standards Agency's Operations Group rather than a local authority.
