Inspections & Licenses

Inspections conducted by the Bureau of Environmental Health (BEH) are arrived at determining compliance with Massachusetts Department of Public Health regulations and or federal statutory requirements.  BEH is tasked with regulating a variety of industries and activities from food processing and distribution to the operation of mammography facilities.  The frequency of inspection is risk based.  The purpose of facility inspections is to protect the health and wellbeing of Massachusetts residents.

Data Considerations

When reviewing and interpreting inspection and license data, it is important to take into consideration the following:

  • Inspection data available for review on this portal is limited to conditions noted at the time of inspections. Facilites most often make operational improvements based upon the findings of an inspection.
  • Each inspection report documents conditions observed at the facility on the day the inspector was present and may not necessarily reflect a firm’s compliance over an extended period of time.
  • Inspection and license data on this portal is current as of the date last updated and shown at the bottom of the report.
