The decision on whether or not to issue an approval will be made as soon as possible after all necessary documents have been received. Normally you can expect to get an answer from The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration within four weeks.
If your activities only require registration, you can start your food business after confirmation from the DVFA that your business is registered.
In case of rejection
If the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration decides to reject your application for approval or registration you will receive a reasoned notification. If you disagree with the decision to refuse your application, you have the right to appeal. The deadline for submitting an appeal is four weeks from date on which the decision was announced.
The appeal should be submitted in writing by e-mail, letter or fax to the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration who will forward your complaint to the Danish Environment and Food Board of Appeal. Find contact details to the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration below.
