The report is documentation of what has been inspected in the establishment, the findings and the results. If there are violations the sanctions are noted in the report. Sanctions may be remarks, enjoining orders, injunctions, prohibitory orders, administrative fines or reporting to the police.
In reports to retailers the overall result of the inspection is summarized in one of four more or less smiling smiley-faces.
Establishments with four happy smiley´s on their last four inspection reports – and no remarks during the last 12 month - are awarded an elite-smiley, to be used in their marketing.
Retailers must post the inspection report near the entrances, for consumers to read the before entering the shop.
All inspection reports are published at http://www.findsmiley.dk/en-US/Forside.htm
