Web Portal for Inspection Reports

Notice:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be gaps in inspection data from early 2020 through 2022 as Environmental Health Departments across Oregon supported their offices in managing the pandemic response.  

We have completed a statewide rollout of updated software to allow county offices to better serve the licensed facility operators in Oregon.  With this update, we now have a new look to our web portal showing inspection reports for food, public pool and lodging facilities across Oregon.

The site shows 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**
