YachtChefs.com contacted the MCA to ask them how often chefs need to update their food safety or food hygiene certificates?

The answer as below is they recoomend every 5 years..

Dear YachtChefs.com

Thank you for your e-mail.  Best practice is that Food Safety should be renewed to a minimum of every 5 years.

Kind regards
