Review of Hotel and Restaurant Regulation, Report No. 96-24, December 1996
Full report in PDF format

  • In 1995, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration noted that Florida's Hotel and Restaurant Regulation program did not discourage repeat violations. This problem has not been resolved.
  • The program could improve its effectiveness and possibly reduce costs by adopting a risk-based inspection system and targeting its resources to those food and lodging establishments that pose the greatest public health risk.
  • Weaknesses in the program's management information system, management turnover, and the lack of an effective performance assessment system have contributed to these problems.
