Pennsylvania Food Safety State Requirements:

Pennsylvania requires that a person in charge of a food establishment demonstrate knowledge of food safety as outlined in the FDA Food Code. Taking an approved Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) Training Course and passing an Exam is one way to demonstrate knowledge. Local requirements may exceed the state’s minimum requirements.

The Learn2Serve Food Protection Manager Certification is approved by the American National Standards Institute and the Conference for Food Protection (ANSI-CFP). This accredited exam is accepted in all states that have mandatory certification requirements for Food Management Professionals.

The Pennsylvania Food Employee Certification Act, 3 Pa C.S. §§ 6501 – 6510, as amended, requires one supervisory employee per food facility to become certified in food safety and sanitation by taking a nationally recognized food certification class and obtaining a National Certificate of completion. National courses are those that have been approved by the Conference of Food Protection.

The Act does not require the certified person to be on premises during all hours of business, but does require that they be available during all hours of operation. When in the facility, the certified supervisory employee is the Person-in-Charge (PIC).

New establishments will have 90 days to comply with the Act; existing establishments which are not in compliance due to employee turnover or other loss of certified person shall have three (3) months from the date of loss to comply.
