Only takeaways registered with the Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM) will now be authorised to run their business after being given six months to formalise their registration

The city’s eateries and restaurants are licensed by the Municipal Affairs Bureau or the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO). However, until yesterday takeaways were not covered by the government’s licensing system for the restaurant sector as they do not provide on-site dining services. The new registration system aims to ensure food safety by strengthening the government’s supervision of the production and processing of food in the city.

IAM food safety

From now on, those who intend to run a takeaway have to register with the IAM first before being allowed to run the business.

However, according to the statement, takeaways that had registered with the Financial Services Bureau to run a business before the new registration system took effect yesterday – can register with the Municipal Affairs Bureau within six months.

The statement noted that those who run a takeaway without registration will face a fine of MOP 20,000, reported The Macau Post Daily.
