Under Law No. 8 of 1990, the Food Safety Department at the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) implemented the public health policy regarding food safety and carries out the responsibilities entrusted to it by the MOPH.
The law requires that all employees who are working in the food sector must take a medical examination. This service is provided by the Medical Commission Department (MOPH) only.
Any employee working in the food sector, despite his/her job occupation must have a valid health certificate. The validity of the health certificate is one year, and it should be renewed every year.
This extends to employees working with food at events in Qatar such as when the FIFA world cup was hosted in 2022.
The requirements are outlined as below:
