Which food establishments are excused?

A local health officer will excuse a food service facility from having a Certified Food Safety manager employed, if after evaluation by the local health department, the foodservice facility:

  1. Is categorized within the lowest risk class with a local health department using a risk-based evaluation system; or
  2. Provides a menu of prepackaged, or heat and serve foods, or food items that do not require a lot of handling or assembly and do not perform any of the following food preparation procedures as defined in the Food Code, R392-100:
    1. a) Cook foods that are required to get to critical temperatures as required by R392-100
    2. b) Use food items that are required to be cooled within a 6 hour time period as required by R392-100; or
    3. c) Use food items that must be reheated to 165 degrees as required by R392-100

Does the Certified Food Protection Manager need to be present at the food establishment at all times?

The Certified Food Protection Manager does not have to be present during every hour of business. Although, the certified manager must be a full-time employee.

Does the food facility need to keep a record of the food safety manager’s certification?

A food service facility must keep a copy of its certified food safety manager’s documentation with a passing exam score on file at the facility. The food service facility’s person in charge should provide this documentation to the local health department or the designated representative if requested.

Are there minimum hours of training to acquire the Food Manager Certification?

Taking a training course is highly recommended, however, it is not required. The only requirement is to successfully pass an exam from an accredited, approved provider such as Always Food Safe, Prometric, or ServSafe.
