How NVEAIS Works

Once registered for NVEAIS, states and localities can report environmental assessment data from foodborne illness outbreak investigations.


  1. State or local environmental health or food safety specialists conduct an environmental assessment during a foodborne illness outbreak investigation.
  2. The person who conducted the environmental assessment or the designated NVEAIS data collector knowledgeable about the outbreak enters data from the environmental assessment into NVEAIS.
  3. The designated NVEAIS administrator reviews and verifies the entered data. Once verified, the data are reported into the NVEAIS database.
  4. States/jurisdictions can download their data at any time.
  5. Data are held on a central server complying with all security policies for CDC and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
