There are changes coming in the law for "Certified Food Protection Manager requirement effective July 1, 2018. Under 12VAC5-421-55 of the Virginia Food Regulations, all food establishments, including temporary food establishments (TFEs), are required to have a certified food protection manager no later than July 1, 2018. Certain establishments may be exempt based on their menu and processes".
