Apply for a certificate according to the Infection Protection Act for activities with foodstuffs


Do you produce food, treat it or place it on the market? Do you come into contact with these foods directly or indirectly - via consumer goods, such as plates or cutlery? You would like to work or be active in kitchens of restaurants, canteens and cafés or in facilities for communal catering?

Then you need a certificate from the health office that is no more than 3 months old. This proves the successful participation in an instruction about the measures for the protection against infections.

The aim of the instruction is to enable you to recognize your own symptoms of infectious diseases or symptoms of your employees at an early stage. You should also be able to prevent further spread as well as contamination of food and to assess when you should no longer carry out your activities in the event of certain symptoms.

The certificate is issued either by the health department or by a physician appointed by the health department.

  • You are working commercially for the first time or are employed in the production, treatment or marketing of foodstuffs, during which you come into contact with them.
  • There are no indications that you have an infectious disease (e.g. salmonellosis, shigellosis).

  • Passport with possible certificate of registration

Make sure that the certificate is not older than 3 months when you start your activity.

Example: You start your activity on 01.09. Then the certificate may be issued on 01.06. at the earliest.

The instruction lasts about 30 minutes.

The local health department or a physician appointed by the health department is responsible.
