Food Establishment Inspection Scores

Inspection scores are based on a 100-point system subtracting demerits for both critical and non-critical violations. Critical violations, those that require immediate corrective action due to food contamination, illness and/or injury, are assigned a higher weighted point value than non-critical violations.
