    Abstract

    A survey of local retail food regulatory program personnel from throughout the United States revealed that, other than on-site resolution, the informal conference was the most widely used approach for settling disputes involving persistent, non-critical violations. The primary objective of the conference approach is the prompt, voluntary correction of insanitary conditions. It is most effective when used as a one-time compliance action for retail food operators whose retail food facilities and operations do not present serious public health risks, such as critical violations or imminent health hazards.
