Examinee Information

National Registry uses recognized exam development practices to design certification exams that exceed industry expectations for clarity and accuracy.  

National Registry offers its food safety manager exam in two formats. The Food Safety Manager Certification Examination (FSMCE) is accredited under exam standards set by the Conference of Food Protection (CFP). The International Certified Food Safety Manager (ICFSM) is jointly accredited under both the CFP standards and the ISO 17024 standard.

Both programs are accepted throughout the United States and meets regulatory requirements. 

To renew your certification, you will need to take a Food Safety Manager exam before the expiration of your current certification. In some areas, continuing training hours are required. Check with your local health department for training requirements.

The only method for maintaining certification is by retaking the examinations.
