Food Safety Manager Certification

Who Needs a Food Safety Manager Certification?

Most food facilities are required to have at least one person, an owner or designated employee, who has passed an approved food safety certification exam. Most of the other facility employees are required to have a California Food Handler Card.

New food facilities have 60 days after opening day to obtain certification. Certification is valid for five (5) years from the date of issuance.
