Amendment requirements to permit.









(1) Amendments to an existing cottage food permit after issuance within a calendar year require a new application and application fee. Amendments requiring a new application include the addition of new products, when recipes changes occur, or when the premises areas change.
(2) At a minimum, the department must conduct the public health review of all new food products, process a new permit and conduct an inspection of the cottage food premises before any new additional cottage food products can be allowed.
(3) If a cottage food operator wishes to add new products to his or her permit, an application amendment must be submitted to the department.
(4) An application amendment will contain the same information as outlined in WAC 16-149-060 and on a form provided by the department.
(5) If there are no significant changes to the premises, the department will require the public health review of all new recipes submitted for review, and after approval, process an amended cottage food operation permit to the applicant. This application amendment will require the submission of seventy-five dollars for the public health review and thirty dollars for processing for the permit.
(6) If there are significant changes to the premises, the department will require the public health review of all new recipes submitted for review, and after approval, process an amended cottage food operation permit to the applicant. This application amendment will require the submission of seventy-five dollars for the public health review, one hundred twenty-five dollars for inspection and thirty dollars for processing for the permit.
(7) Significant change under this section means any change in the premises previously submitted to and inspected by the department under this chapter which is substantial enough in the department's judgment to require reinspection and approval. This includes, but is not limited to:
(a) Structural changes within the cottage food operation's premises such as a remodel or addition to the home that affects the cottage food operation areas previously inspected.
(b) Additional locations within the premises that are now intended to be used for portions of the cottage food operations that were not previously inspected. For example: A basement storage area is now planned to be utilized for storage of finished products. This basement area was not originally part of the permitted area and not previously inspected by the department.
