University Environmental Health and Safety
This policy applies to all food service, preparation, storage, and sales in all areas owned or operated by Indiana University and its affiliates. These registered operations include, but are not limited to; residential dining, catering operations, temporary events, athletic concessions, Greek organizations and any other facility where food is prepared, processed, or released to an individual or group.
The policy of Indiana University is to provide safe, sanitary, and unadulterated food service. Indiana University will maintain compliance with federal, state, and local public health rules and regulations. By adoption of this policy Indiana University administration grants the authority to University Environmental Health and Safety to enforce the contents of this policy and accompanying program documents.
Indiana University is resolute in sustaining compliance with the established Partnership Agreement between the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and Indiana University Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) which provides regulatory authority for state food law for the areas specified in the agreement. This includes the establishment of annual registration and fees for applicable retail food establishments.
IUPUI Environmental Health and Safety and the Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) achieve compliance through a separate partnership agreement whereby MCHPD provides regulation and enforcement of local and state food law for the IUPUI campus.
In addition to regulation, all properties are subject to university policies designed to ensure safe food service for all IU community members and guests.
Policy administration is to be established through the applicable Food Protection programs, Retail Food Establishments programs and Temporary Event Food Service programs under university policy and the enforcement of local, state, and federal rules and regulations. All visitors, students, employees, including staff and faculty, volunteers, external vendors, contracted vendors, and applicable retail food establishments must meet and follow their respective campus programs and applicable regulations for food protection when offering or selling food to the campus public. IUEHS and applicable regulatory authorities will oversee, review, permit, register, inspect, regulate, and enforce university programs and food safety regulations within their purview on all IU campuses.
