Hygiene Proficiency

Those working with unpackaged foodstuffs on food premises must have a hygiene proficiency certificate ("hygiene passport") as proof of their food hygiene competence. The passport is granted after passing the Finnish Food Authority's (Ruokavirasto) hygiene proficiency test.

The in-house control plan must keep track of the food hygiene proficiency of the staff. The entrepreneur is responsible for the staff having a hygiene proficiency certificate.
