Environmental Health Services - FAQs
What do I need to do to open a new food establishment?
Visit the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) Chapter 446 to obtain regulation information regarding food establishments in Nevada.  Call or visit our office at 4150 Technology Way, Suite 100, Carson City, Nevada, 89701 (775) 687-7550 for the application, fee schedule and plan review requirements package.
 
Can I operate a food stand or food cart on a regular basis?

A food stand or cart can only be operated on a regular basis in a facility that meets the requirements of NAC 446.946.  A food stand or cart may also be operated as a temporary food establishment in conjunction with a special event lasting up to 14 days.  Please see the Temporary Event Information page for additional information and fees.

 
Do I need a grease interceptor for a new food establishment?
If the food establishment generates grease, a grease interceptor is required.  If the establishment does not generate grease, a letter from the sanitation district that states a grease interceptor is not required must accompany the plan documents.
 
Do I need a temporary food permit for a special event if I am only selling prepackaged foods and I offer samples?
Yes.  When samples are offered to the public, a permit is required.  Please see the Temporary Event Information page for additional information and fees.
 
Does the State of Nevada regulate new bedding?
No.  The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health only regulates "used" bedding and requires certain labeling requirements for the disinfection process.
 
Does the State of Nevada regulate tattoo parlors?

I have mold in my home, what should I do?
