Date posted:


The Department's Health Inspection Program (HIP) is proposing changes to its rule, to update requirements consistent with PL 2021, ch. 125, as well as clarify language that improves protection of patrons of eating establishments, lodging places, campgrounds, recreational and sporting camps, youth camps, or public pools/spas in Maine. Proposed changes include added and clarified definitions, removal of the waiver for an alternative entity performing inspections of youth camps, increased licensing fees for delegated municipalities, and increasing administrative fines for establishments operating without a license or committing other unresolved violations. The Department is also proposing to rename this rule from Administration and Enforcement of Establishments Licensed by the Health Inspection Program Rule to the Health Inspection Program Administration Rule.
