The Oregon Health Authority Foodborne Illness Prevention Program works in partnership with local health departments, the food service industry and the public to reduce or eliminate the known causes of foodborne illness. The program provides technical assistance, training and education, coordinates rulemaking, supports the statewide licensing and inspection system and oversees the Food Handler Card program.

Mobile Food Unit and Temporary Restaurant Rule Changes
The Oregon Health Authority is proposing changes to the Mobile Food Unit and Food Sanitation Rules (OAR 333-150 and 333-162) The mobile unit (food truck, food cart) industry has evolved significantly since the rules were last subject to a major revision in 1997. These draft rules were developed by a workgroup of industry and regulatory members to update the statewide standards. A public hearing will be held on these proposed rules later this year. The Oregon Health Authority will post information on the hearing date, location, and how to submit testimony on the proposed rules. Please note that the proposed rules listed in the document (English
) are not the only changes to the mobile food unit standards. The complete draft rules will be available soon.
Web Portal for Inspection Reports
The Oregon Health Authority has launched a new web portal that will allow people to easily find inspection reports for food, public pool and lodging facilities, such as restaurants, swimming pools and hotels across Oregon.
The portal is provided as part of a software update to the statewide licensing and inspection system. The site will show semi-annual, biennial and annual routine inspections as well as reinspections.
**Please note that there is a 14-day lag from the date of inspection until it is shown on the website**
