DCA inspects tens of thousands of businesses Citywide to enforce local consumer protection and licensing laws, as well as State and federal regulations. These laws protect you and your customers by requiring that you both have the same information about prices, store policies, and rights.

To help you obey the laws we enforce, DCA created inspection checklists that, for the first time, provide a picture of what we look for during inspections.
