Food Handler Certification

As of January 1st, 2005, the State of Indiana requires that at least one person in each food establishment, who oversees food safety operations, be a "certified food handler" unless exempted by 410 IAC 7-22.   A food service establishment must pass an exam that meets the standards established by the Conference for Food Protection.  If you are not sure if you or your retail food establishment is required to obtain the "certified food handler" accreditation, please read attached food handler certification fact sheet.
