Our Division assesses permitted establishments for compliance with the Maricopa
County Environmental Health Code. In order to do that we issue permits to businesses
like food establishments, pet shops, public accommodations and mobile food vendors.
These businesses are then inspected on a regular basis with a frequency that depends
on the type of operation. In addition, we also follow up on nuisance complaints
if they fall within our jurisdiction, such as sewage, rodents, garbage, etc. in
a permitted establishment.
Below is a list of some of the establishments we inspect:
- food establishments i.e. restaurants, hospitals, grocery stores, convenience markets.
- public accommodations like hotels, motels and resorts.
- pet shops.
- food processors i.e. chips factory, ice cream manufacturer etc.
- food jobbers/warehouses.
- mobile food vendors i.e. ice cream vendors, mobile food units and hot dog carts.
