Beginning January of 2017, the OC Health Care Agency’s Environmental Health division will be introducing a new Retail Food Facility Inspection Report that is based on the California Food Inspection Data Fields Marking Guideline. The report aligns with the risk-based inspection process that was adopted by the Orange County Board of Supervisors in August of 2015. This change is intended to better standardize retail food inspections with other jurisdictions throughout the state and emphasize the prevention of foodborne illness risk factors for the health and safety of Orange County’s residents and visitors. You may reference the Retail Food Program Inspection Guide here for a thorough description of the changes. Here are some of the highlights:

Retail Food Inspection Guide 
  • Routine inspections will now be provided in a “checklist” format, which will recognize food facilities for complying with critical risk factors, in addition to noting those violations that need to be corrected.
  • The inspection report will be divided into three sections: (1) Critical Risk Factors, (2) Good Retail Practices, and (3) Compliance & Enforcement to more clearly depict the degree of risk associated with each violation and measures taken in response to the observed violation.
  • The posting of the inspection notification seals (Pass, Reinspection Due - Pass, Closed) will remain the same.

For any questions regarding these changes, please contact your assigned inspector or Environmental Health at (714) 433-6000.
