  • have 50 or more hens and any of the eggs are marketed at local public markets
  • produce eggs and any of these are then marketed to registered packing centres

Applicants must read the guidance (EMR01) before completing the form. This provides guidance on rules covering the production, marking, transport, grading, packing and onward marketing of eggs which are intended for human consumption.

Premises selling eggs to other businesses (such as shops, restaurants or bakeries) must apply for authorisation as a packing centre using form EMR02. These eggs must first be graded as Class A.
