Food Safety - Inspection Tools

The following inspection tools were modeled after the National Conference for Food Protection inspection guidance documents and are used by retail food inspectors to reference citations. An electronic system generates a report using this information.

  • Marking Guide  - The Marking Guide is a comprehensive guide for marking the inspection report.
  • Citation Index - The Citation Index shows all citations in numerical order with the correlating item number.
  • Violation Index - The Violation Index links categorical words with corresponding subtopics, item numbers, citations, and risks.
  • Inspection Report - The Inspection Report is used to evaluate and grade a restaurant during a risk based inspection.
