The bedding industry inspection program was created in the 1950's. It is a traditional public health program for the protection of the consumer. Its mission is to provide for the safe manufacture and processing of wholesale and retail bedding products, and for the germicidal treatment of used bedding products. Program staff develop, write, implement and interpret rules, issue mandated licenses, track statistical data, provide for enforcement of establishments not in compliance, train industry and consumers in bedding manufacturing practices, meet with consumer advisory committees, and provide technical assistance as necessary. On-site inspections of the establishments are performed by Consumer Health Service personnel.
If your facility manufactures, sells, leases, or imports bedding products then you would be required to have a Manufacturing Permit
Second-hand bedding products sold in the state of Oklahoma are required to be cleaned, have stains and odors removed, and be germicidally treated before they are sold.
If your facility renovates, repairs or germicidally treats bedding products then you would be required to have a Germicidal Permit.
NOTE: If the second-hand bedding products your facility leases or sells are treated offsite by another permitted establishment then your facility will only need a manufacturing permit. If your facility germicidally treats the second-hand bedding products onsite, then you will need both manufacturing and germicidal permits.
