How does the JCSA ensure compliance?

JCSA will randomly inspect FSEs without advance notice and with inspectors observing the normal operations at the FSE. This is also to ensure that BMPs are properly implemented. During inspection, they will ask for maintenance logs and manifest records (receipts) from licensed grease haulers and recyclers. These records will verify compliance with proper waste disposal requirements. All records of cleanings should be maintained for 3 years. The JCSA also utilizes CCTV footage of the sewer lines found during routine maintenance. This footage can pinpoint the exact source of FOG and is utilized to assist with mitigating problem areas that are caused by FOG.
