License Renewals

Licenses are reviewed and issued annually (January 1 – December 31) by the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.  Current license holders will receive a renewal application in November.  Renewal payments are due by December 31 to avoid a late fee.  For questions on renewals, contact 406.444.2415


Licensed establishments are inspected one or more times each year.  Inspection frequency is determined by the complexity of the operation and the history of compliance with the food rules.  Additional fees are charged for violations that are not corrected within the timeframe specified in the inspection report.


To report a complaint, call Environmental Health Services at 406.256.2770.
