Navigating New Public Health Regulations for NC Bars Webinar

January 29 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Attention North Carolina bar owners and operators! Starting March 27, new health inspection regulations will come into effect, impacting many bars across the state. To ensure you’re well-prepared and compliant, NCRLA is hosting a webinar on Monday, Jan. 29 at 1:30 pm. To register for the webinar, CLICK HERE.

This informative session will feature panelists:

  • Shane Smith, Public Health Branch Head at NCDHHS
  • Carolyn Griffin, NCRLA’s Specialist in Food Safety and Lodging Regulations
  • Hardy Lewis, Attorney with expertise in ABC Law

The webinar will provide an in-depth review of the new health permit requirements that will affect bars serving food. Additionally, there will be a Q&A segment for bar owners about regulations pertaining to establishments offering only drink garnishes and unopened commercial snack packages, which are exempt from these new rules. Context: With the enactment of House Bill 125, significant changes were introduced, amending the definition of a bar and impacting health inspection protocols. This followed the removal of the “private bar” requirement by House Bill 768, leading to a broad classification of bars and exemption from inspections. These upcoming changes mark a significant shift for many bars that have never undergone health inspections. NCRLA is committed to guiding you through these transitions under the new legislative landscape. READ MORE
