Taipei, April 25 (CNA) The Taipei City Department of Health launched on Monday a website for 201604250025t0001caterers to notify the government of their upcoming events involving guests of 200 or more outside their restaurants.

The new website (in Chinese) was set up after the city government introduced a new food safety regulation in January, which requires the city’s tourist hotels (44 as of February) and restaurants that have at least 20 tables and serve Chinese banquets to notify the government about catering services offered outside their own venues.

Caterers that fail to notify the city government about services offered to 200 guests or more three days before an event will receive a written warning for their first violation, the city’s Department of Health said.

Repeat offenders will face fines ranging from NT$10,000 (US$309.12) to NT$100,000, according to the city regulation.     [FULL  STORY]
