Using the electronic service
The reception of notifications submitted via the electronic service is an automatic process and the system sends the information provided in the notifications directly to the municipality responsible for the control of the operator in question. Operators should pay special attention to the accuracy of the information provided in the notification before the notification is submitted via the electronic service. Evira will not make any corrections in the notifications. A fee based on the Decree of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (Decree of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry on fees to be collected for services performed by the Finnish Food Safety Authority) is charged for all notifications submitted to Evira via the electronic service (excluding notification of removal of a fortified food from the market which is free of charge).
Foreign operators cannot use the electronic service for submission of notifications, as the Katso identifier of the Finnish Tax Administration is needed to log into the electronic system (issued to Finnish companies).
