    Are Hand Sinks required by the I-Codes, to be installed in Food Serving
    business ?........If so, please provide the applicable Code Section.

    I am using the `15 I-Codes.

    Thanks !

    The Health Dept. in this one state, is saying that they do
    not have jurisdiction over churches or government facilities,
    so No, ...not required [ according to the State Health Dept.
    representative ].

    I agree that Hand Sinks are a very good idea & "should be"
    required in ALL places where food is served to the public.

    Thank you for your input !

    Is it a church or is it a government facility?
    Or is it a church within a government facility (like a military chapel)?

    It is an existing, small Military PX, ...something akin
    to a Convenience Store without gas pumps.

    If the Health Dept has no jurisdiction over this, I would bet the US Govt has its own set of code requirements governing the construction of foodservice facilities on military bases.
