COLUMBUS, OH -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association and the Ohio Automatic Merchandising Association said they are working closely with Ohio's Department of Health in support of new proposed rules that update the state's FDA-based code with new language regarding micromarkets.

The proposal (OH 17337) addresses the issue of a power or mechanical failure. "OAMA and NAMA believe this is a reasonable way to help safeguard the industry and the public health, and support adoption of the proposal," NAMA said.

OAMA, a NAMA state council, has reportedly been working with Ohio's Department of Health and Department of Agriculture on their separate rules concerning micromarkets since fall 2011. OAMA's lobbyist and board members have provided the information needed for legislators and the two agencies to understand micromarkets.

Representatives from OAMA planned to testify in support of the rules at a June 28 hearing of the Public Health Council, which makes recommendations in regard to Ohio's Uniform Food Safety Code. OAMA and NAMA also submitted comments in support of the rules.
