Food Safety Health Certificates

Export Health Certificates

Wording on the Certificate

The wording of a basic certificate states that the premises where the food was packed or manufactured complies with food hygiene legislation but does not include any wording that implies that West Lindsey District Council vouches for the safety of the individual batch/consignment of food.

It is your responsibility to obtain the required wording for the certificate, which can vary between countries. You may need to contact the embassy for the relevant country if your customer cannot supply this information.


Certificates cost £57.00* each.
Export Certificates will only be issued after payment has been received.
