Part 1: Breaking the Barriers to Implementing Risk-Based Inspections in Retail Food Safety

On Thursday, May 26 from 2 PM – 3 PM ET, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Conference for Food Protection (CFP), hosted an online sharing session on factors influencing the implementation of risk-based inspections. This sharing session focused on the results of a study conducted in 2021 by NACCHO and CFP to identify, better understand, and assess the application of risk-based inspection methods currently employed by local retail food regulatory programs while seeking to identify the overarching barriers preventing application of risk-based inspection methods. Nine jurisdictions were interviewed, and the participants identified 15 barriers to the implementation of risk-based inspection methods. This sharing session discussed five strategies to overcome these barriers.
