Temporary food establishments will comply with all of the requirements of
this chapter unless an exemption is granted by the PMA or is listed in this
section. Specific requirements and exceptions for temporary food
establishments are provided in this section.
3-7.2 Inspections and Approvals
a. The preventive medicine authority will inspect and approve
temporary food establishments prior to start of operations. The individual
or agency responsible for the temporary food establishment shall contact
the PMA at least 30 days prior to opening to obtain a permit to operate the
facility. A model form for requesting a permit to operate a temporary food
establishment is available in this chapter in Appendix C.
b. The PMA may:
(1) Waive certain requirements when no health or sanitation hazard
exists. An example is waiving the requirements for screens and doors
during cold weather when no hazard exists from flies contaminating food.
(2) Impose additional requirements to protect public health.
Examples would be; restricting the amount or type food preparation, or
prohibiting certain high risk potentially hazardous food.
