The Purpose of an Inspection Report
Writing inspection reports is a key element of conducting inspections in California. The primary purpose of the report is to communicate and document the findings of an inspection. Since the potential audiences that view the report will vary, the inspection report must be clearly written and describe all elements of the inspection. Some readers may want to know the technical issues as well as the exact regulatory citations and language. Other readers may want a “bigger” picture of the inspection in order to note trends. Prosecutorial agencies will need to know specific details regarding violations noted and evidence obtained during the inspection. In all cases, the inspection report serves to communicate and document the findings of the inspector to the reader. Nothing in this guidance is intended to require lengthy narratives. It is intended to require that essential inspection details are included in all inspection reports.
