Rules and Regulations

Food Establishments

According to Oklahoma State Health Department Rule 310:257-15-12, a person shall not operate a food service establishment without a valid license or temporary operating permit issued by the Health Department.  A food establishment includes any business selling food, from a full-service restaurant to a store that only sells pre-packaged items.  If you would like information on opening a new establishment, please click here.

The current edition of our rules and regulations can be found here.

If you are setting up a temporary food establishment, we have a condensed set of guidelines for you (PDF, 19k).  Please note that the full extent of Chapter 257 still applies. 


A current list of fees is available here.
