Reminder: Stakeholders Meeting for Maricopa County's 2017 FDA Code Adoption

2017 Food Code

The Maricopa County Environmental Services Department has initiated the Enhanced Regulatory Outreach Process (EROP) to adopt the 2017 FDA Food Code by reference and has some proposed revisions to the Maricopa County Environmental Health Code (MCEHC). The new food code contains the latest in food safety practices and will bring the state and counties into alignment. This alignment levels the playing field for stakeholders who will have one set of rules to follow, which will create consistency for all parties across counties. A complete summary of the 2017 FDA Food Code changes can be found here.

2017 Food Code (b)

The department encourages participation from anyone interested in the food code adoption or the health code revisions. The stakeholder meeting is scheduled for May 7, 2021 at 2:00pm and will be a virtual meeting.
