Therefore, in order to fully implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and strengthen the integration of systems, it is necessary to formulate the”Shenzhen Regulations on the Quantitative and Grading Management of Daily Supervision and Inspection of Food Safety in Catering Services” (hereinafter referred to as the”Management Regulations”), which will classify daily supervision and quantification. In combination, comprehensively strengthen the quantitative and hierarchical management of food safety supervision in catering services, further improve the food safety management level of catering service units, and improve the effectiveness of supervision.
