An “Initial Inspection” is a required inspection of the Business Premises conducted by DCR prior to the issuance of a Temporary Approval. 

Please review the Initial Inspection Checklist in preparation for the Initial Inspection. 

Applicants should not request an Initial Inspection until instructed to do so by DCR. Once instructed by DCR, Applicants will request and schedule an Initial Inspection.     

If DCR finds any deficiencies during the Initial Inspection, an additional inspection will be required after the Applicant corrects any deficiencies.     

Please note that due COVID-19, DCR will be conducting inspections virtually until further notice.  (insert link to provide information regarding virtual inspections).
