Food safety should be proactive. This approach is referred to as Active Managerial Control or AMC. AMC assessments are a birds-eye view of procedures that establishments use to be proactive in compliance with food safety regulations. Some of these controls are specifically required by regulation, such as having a certified food protection manager, while others are best practices, such as periodic logging of refrigerator temperatures. Having these controls in place will protect your patrons and may lead to fewer violations when routine inspections are conducted.
Whether all of these apply to your process or not, please complete this self-assessment to familiarize yourself with all of the components possible. The assessment should take about 20 minutes to complete.
This assessment is intended to be a self-assessment to help you prepare for your inspection or meetings with environmental health staff. Establishments are encouraged to answer the assessment questions honestly. There is no score or rating assigned through this assessment. The sole purpose of this activity is to help the restaurant community prepare for and do well on future inspections.
