Reinspection for reinstatement
Action 5017
General Information
Action Summary Section 185 is amended to clarify that renewal (within 30 days of the expiration of an annual registration) is a late renewal rather than a reinstatement. After 30 days, an establishment is required to reinstate its registration and an inspection is required. However, it typically takes time to schedule the inspection, so the Board is deleting the rule stating that the reinstatement is “contingent” on a reinspection to avoid delays in reinstating the establishment registration. A reinspection will still be required to determine whether the establishment has been open and operating with an expired registration.
