Inspection Program

Karan Campbell-Everett, Program Lead

The mission of the Inspection Program is to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the consuming public is protected by inspecting every licensed barber, cosmetology and veterinary establishment to ensure that the sanitation and safety requirements for these establishments are adhered to; that those practicing these professions are duly licensed; and to actively seek out unlicensed activity relating to these professions.  This is accomplished through a regulated inspection process by performing the statutorily mandated and complaint driven inspections of establishments licensed by the Board of Cosmetology, Barbers’ Board, and the Board of Veterinary Medicine. The Inspection Program operates pursuant to Rules 61G3-10.015, 61G5-20.003, and 61G18-15.005, Florida Administrative Code.
