This is an update on the Department of Business Regulation’s (“Department”) implementation plan for the State Mobile Food Establishment Registration Act (“Act”), R.I. Gen Laws Chapter 5-11.1, and the regulations promulgated thereunder, 230-RICR-30-35-1.
To ease the burden on municipalities during this transition period, state registration by Mobile Food Establishments (“MFE”) will be optional in 2019. Therefore, municipalities may choose to continue using their current MFE permit process until December 31, 2019, along with the following required limited changes.

The Department is working with the State Division of Enterprise Technology Strategy and Services (“ETSS”) to design a MFE registration system within the ViewPoint e-Permitting Platform. ETSS intends for this process to be ready for online State registrations by July 1, 2019.
