§ 5.14. Inspection and testing by the Department.

 (a)  Inspections generally. The Department may evaluate the performance of a certified UPC/PLU inspector who conducts inspections for a private certification program by conducting a follow-up inspection of any UPC scanning system or PLU device that has been inspected and tested by the certified UPC/PLU inspector.

 (b)  Time lapse and other factors effecting results. In evaluating the inspection and testing performed by a certified UPC/PLU inspector as described in subsection (a), the Department will consider any factor that might reasonably account for a variance between the Department’s inspection results and those of the certified UPC/PLU inspector, including a lapse of time between an inspection performed by the Department and the inspection performed by the certified UPC/PLU inspector.

 (c)  Reporting of results. Within 30 days following a follow-up inspection, the Department will mail the certified UPC/PLU inspector written notice of the Department’s inspection and the results of that inspection.

 (d)  Use of results. The Department may use the results of its follow-up inspection to suspend or revoke a UPC/PLU inspector’s certificate, as described in subsection (a), in accordance with §  5.15 (relating to suspension or revocation of certification), or as the basis for a warning or instruction directed to the certified UPC/PLU inspector.
