    AN ACT concerning health.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act is
amended by changing Section 3 as follows:
 
    (410 ILCS 625/3)  (from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 333)
    Sec. 3. Each food service establishment shall be under the
operational supervision of a certified food service sanitation
manager in accordance with rules promulgated under this Act.
    By July 1, 1990, the Director of the Department of Public
Health in accordance with this Act, shall promulgate rules for
the education, examination, and certification of food service
establishment managers and instructors of the food service
sanitation manager certification education programs. Beginning
January 1, 2018, any individual who has completed a minimum of
8 hours of Department-approved training for food service
sanitation manager certification, inclusive of the
examination, and received a passing score on the examination
set by the certification exam provider accredited under
standards developed and adopted by the Conference for Food
Protection or its successor organization, shall be considered
to be a certified food service sanitation manager. Beginning
January 1, 2018, any individual who has completed a minimum of
8 hours of Department-approved training for food service
sanitation manager instructor certification, inclusive of the
examination, and received a passing score on the examination
set by the certification exam provider accredited under
standards developed and adopted by the Conference for Food
Protection or its successor organization, shall be considered
to be a certified food service sanitation manager instructor.
Beginning July 1, 2014, any individual seeking a food service
sanitation manager certificate or a food service sanitation
manager instructor certificate must complete a minimum of 8
hours of Department-approved training, inclusive of the
examination, and receive a passing score on the examination set
by the certification exam provider accredited under standards
developed and adopted by the Conference for Food Protection or
its successor organization. A food service sanitation manager
certificate and a food service sanitation manager instructor
certificate issued by the exam provider shall be valid for 5
years, unless revoked by the Department of Public Health, and
shall not be transferable from the individual to whom it was
issued. Beginning July 1, 2014, recertification for food
service sanitation manager certification shall be accomplished
by presenting evidence of completion of 8 hours of
Department-approved training, inclusive of the examination,
and having received a passing score on the examination set by
the certification exam provider accredited under standards
developed and adopted by the Conference for Food Protection or
its successor organization.
    For purposes of certification and recertification for food
service sanitation manager certification, the Department shall
accept only training approved by the Department and
certification exams accredited under standards developed and
adopted by the Conference for Food Protection or its successor.
The Department shall charge a fee of $35 for each new and
renewed food service sanitation manager certificate and $10 for
each replacement certificate. All fees collected under this
Section shall be deposited into the Food and Drug Safety Fund.
    Any fee received by the Department under this Section that
is submitted for the renewal of an expired food service
sanitation manager certificate may be returned by the Director
after recording the receipt of the fee and the reason for its
return.
    The Department shall award an Illinois certificate to
anyone presenting a valid certificate issued by another state,
so long as the holder of the certificate provides proof of
having passed an examination accredited under standards
developed and adopted by the Conference for Food Protection or
its successor. The $35 issuance fee applies. The reciprocal
Illinois certificate shall expire on the same date as the
presented certificate. On or before the expiration date, the
holder must have met the Illinois recertification requirements
in order to be reissued an Illinois certificate. Reciprocity is
only for individuals who have moved to or begun working in
Illinois in the 6 months prior to applying for reciprocity. Any
individual presenting an out-of-state certificate may do so
only once.
