Inspections are conducted 2-4 times annually. Each inspection results in a score based on the number of violations found. Each score is based on a point system from 0-100, with a score of 100 being perfect. Each violation has a demerit value; this value is subtracted from 100 to give the inspection score.

Violation Severity

Violations may be classified as critical or non-critical. Critical violations, such as temperature control and cross-contamination issues, are more likely than other violations to contribute to food contamination, illness, injury, or cause an environmental health hazard. In the event that a critical violation is found, immediate action is taken to resolve the issue to ensure that the public health is not put at further risk.

A non-critical violation is one that does not seriously affect the public health. Any non-critical violations found during an inspection must be corrected by the time of the next inspection.
