New Application Form for Tourist Establishment

A new application form is being introduced by the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) to improve the planning of inspections and assessments of tourist establishments and their respective swimming pools for their recommendation for licensing by the Department of Tourism.

The inspection process is a service that is offered by the DEH and the new procedure will allow for improved efficiency and a maximum 4 weeks turn-around time. However, an application should be made to the DEH at least 2 months before the expiration of the licence to allow for the completion of the processing of the application. All Environmental Health requirements must be met for the facility to be deemed satisfactory and recommended for licensing by the Department of Tourism.

The new application form can be found at www.gov./deh/ and should be completed and submitted via email to DEHCustomerService@gov.ky   or in person at the DEH office.

Under the Public Health Law (2002 Revision) Part III, the DEH is charged with enforcing various measures designed to protect the health and safety of the population. The DEH has responsibility for regulating tourist establishments including the construction and operation of swimming pools. This is done through ensuring that the minimum standards that are contained in the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC) are met, towards the protection of public health, safety and welfare of the users of public/commercial swimming pools.

All public/commercial pools and those that are being converted to commercial use must meet and maintain these requirements.

For additional information, please contact the DEH at 949-6696, email us at dehcustomerservice@gov.ky , visit the DEH’s website at www.gov.ky/DEH/  or message our Facebook page at https://bit.ly/3LEK55q
