Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 34985
Filed: 06/28/2011 03:47:30 PM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

The rule is authorized by Section 26-15-2. The section requires the department to adopt rules to implement minimum standards in all places where food or drink is handled, sold, or served to the public.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The Bureau of Epidemiology, Environmental Sanitation Program received two comments from the local health departments, one which voiced support of continuation of the rule, and the other listed minor changes to the inspection form as a proposed request. No other comments have been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The rule establishes minimum requirements and standards for the safe handling of food service in home-based childcare settings. This rule is important because it protects the children in home based child care settings to ensure that the food served is free from disease causing organisms, and potential contamination. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
