Material and non-material motivation for compliance: disclosure of food hygiene inspection results in Germany

The publication of food inspection results is one of the innovative measures introduced that use both material and non-material motivation of food businesses to increase regulatory compliance. Disclosure is not a new instrument and has been implemented in, for instance, Denmark, Los Angeles or New York. In Germany, in the last decade a few food hygiene controls results were established (e.g., Berlin Pankow, North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), Zwickau). In this paper, we present the first results of the empirical study we carried out in NRW at the beginning of 2014. The survey was carried out to answer the question of whether the disclosure of hygiene controls influences the motivation of food businesses to comply with rules.
