Food Safety - Food Forms & Applications

Application & Permit

To continue to provide the critical functions of state government while protecting the health and safety of our employees and the public, we have modified and streamlined our processes. Applications and fees are now being handled remotely.

To file a Retail Food Establishment application, download and complete an Application & Permit Document (DHEC 1769) and email it to your local Environmental Affairs Office. Once your application has been received, office personnel will contact you to confirm receipt of your application and to discuss payment options. We are no longer accepting cash payments. If you have any questions, please call your local Environmental Affairs Office for assistance.
