Rules and Regulations
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.
