New IL Requirements – Allergen Training

There are new requirements for certified Food Managers working in restaurants in Illinois which is effective starting January 1, 2018.  All certified Food Managers must complete an additional allergen training program.  The Allergen Certificate must be kept at the establishment and be available to the health inspector upon request. These food laws are also required in other states. Check your state health department for the specific requirements.

 

New IL Requirements – State License

Effective January 1, 2018, the Illinois Department of Public Health will not be issuing a state manager certificate/license. Managers will no longer need to submit the $35 state fee for the state certificate. The ANSI/CFP manager certification (i.e. ServSafe Manager Certificate) will be proof that state requirements have been met.
