Nevada Revised Statute 446.930 and
Nevada Administrative Code 446.955 requires that properly
prepared plans and specifications be submitted to the Health
Authority for review and approval when a food establishment
is newly constructed, extensively remodeled, or if an
existing structure is converted into a food establishment
before any work has begun.
The attached plan review application is provided for your
use in meeting the statutory requirements. It is the Public
Health and Clinical Services EHS’s (PHCS-EHS) goal to facilitate the
plan review process in the most timely and efficient manner.
Some of the items on the list may not apply to your specific

When submitting plans to PHCS-EHS, only
one set is required. It is suggested that you make a copy of
your application for yourself. Submit the application and
plans to the office that is checked on the left side of this
page. If you are in doubt, please call the Carson City
office and you will be directed to the office in which your
plan review will take place. Plan review fees are due and
payable at the time you submit your plans. They are

Plan approval will also be issued in writing.
No changes or revisions in your
plans may be made after approval is given without notifying
