Retail Food Establishment Regulation

Our latest round of Spring Food Forums has concluded, and we are incredibly grateful for all of the feedback we've received. If you were unable to attend this round of Forums but are interested in the topics covered, you can download the PowerPoint presentation here. The next step in the regulatory review process will be to incorporate your comments into our revision. If you didn't get a chance to provide input, we'll be holding another round of Forums on this topic during the Fall. Alternatively, we're happy to meet with your organization or association privately - just let us know.

Once again, we can't thank you enough for your feedback. By working together, we'll be able to guarantee that the forthcoming updates to Regulation 61-25 will be beneficial to all of South Carolina's citizens. For any questions about this process, please contact us by email at foodforums@dhec.sc.gov or by calling the Food Protection Program at 803-896-0640.
