Dutch term or phrase: URGENT ! inhaalslag
Gezien de hygienische normen binnen deze ruimtegroep is het noodzakelijk om hier een periodieke 'inhaalslag' te maken.
I know what inhaalslag means but I haven't been able to find a good translation.

...(lit.: it's necessary here) to periodically work off
Explanation:
make up, catch up,...(the)arrears

in the sense of 'to update the norms'.

That's how I would translate it, as I don't know an English equivalent for the substantive/pronoun 'inhaalslag'
