Illinois Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act

Food Safety Certification Program

Food Safety Certification Program

The Illinois Department of Public Health requires that food service establishments to be under the operational supervision of a certified Food Safety Sanitation Manager. The number of certified food managers is determined by risk and type of facility. That includes establishments that provide full service food preparation as well as those that hold, cool and re-heat food. This person is responsible for overseeing the food handling and preparation process to prevent the occurrence of food-borne illness.

The Food Safety Sanitation Manager Certification program is administered by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).  This program is designed to offer food handlers and supervisors a basic food science background and develop knowledge for the proper handling of food and the sanitary maintenance of food establishments.

The Certificate must be posted prominently and should be in plain view of customers. To obtain a Food Safety Sanitation Manager Certificate you must attend and pass an IDPH approved course. Our course instructors are all IDPH approved.

The FSSMC program is managed by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). Visit their website at https://ildph.usasafeinspect.com/Login.aspx  for information about the Illinois Food Service Sanitation Manager's certificate (FSSMC)
