Food Protection Program

Many food-handling facilities, lodging facilities, and institutions are regulated by state laws and rules. The Environmental Health Section of the NC Department Of Health and Human Services provides statewide regulatory oversight of these establishments.

Sanitation Inspections

The Food And Lodging section administers state regulatory programs for the following: restaurants and other food-handling establishments, meat markets, public swimming pools (more information), child care centers, school lunchrooms, school buildings, tattoo establishments, lodging establishments, bed and breakfast homes, bed and breakfast inns, hospitals, nursing and rest homes, summer camps, local confinement facility, and residential care facilities. Staff members are authorized agents of the State to enforce state laws and rules.

The State also oversees the regulation of shellfish commerce. Shellfish sanitation rules have been established for the protection of the public from shellfish and crustacea that could cause illness. Shellfish sanitation rules can be found by visiting the Department Of Environment And Natural Resources (DENR) web page for shellfish commerce.

New restaurants must obtain a permit from the local Health Department. As part of the permit application process, prospective owners/managers of new restaurants must submit a plan for review by the Brunswick County Health Department. View more information.
