NOTE: If you are planning to apply for a temporary food establishment (TFE) permit and use a food truck or enclosed trailer, approval from Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) may be required. In previous years L&I provided an exemption for mobiles that operated on a temporary basis and allowed reciprocity for mobiles that operated in a different state for at least six months. However, L&I has since modified the regulations for mobile food units (WAC 296-150V).
