New Mexico Food Safety State Requirements

  • New Mexico requires that a person in charge of a food establishment demonstrate knowledge of food safety as presented in the FDA Food Code. Attending an approved Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) Training Course online or in a classroom then passing an accredited Exam is one way to validate that knowledge.
  • Local requirements may exceed the state’s minimum requirements. TAP Series Food Manager’s Course is accompanied with the Prometric Certification Exam that is accredited by the American National Standards Institute and the Conference for Food Protection (ANSI-CFP). This exam is accepted in New Mexico and all states that have mandatory certification requirements for Food Management Professionals.
