Food Code Adoption Map

This interactive map reflects the statutory or regulatory adoption of the FDA Food Code both at the state level and in the U.S. territories as of July 2023. Click on a state below to find more information about the statutory status of Food Code adoption in that state.

The above information is based on research performed by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA). NEHA gathered this information in July 2023 from research into state statutes and regulations done through the Westlaw database. NEHA makes no warranty, express or implied, as to the current status of any state position regarding the adoption of the FDA Food Code.

This map was created as a part of the Retail Food Safety Regulatory Association Collaborative’s Specific Objective 1: Develop a national Food Code adoption strategy and provide tools and resources to our regulatory partners to support these efforts.
