New Definition for Voluntary Retail Food Regulatory Program Standands

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The Program Standards Committee in collaboration with the FDA Clearinghouse Committee would like to add a new definition for "Self-Assessment Update" to the Program Standards in an effort to provide further clarification to the Program Standards.

Public Health Significance

The definitions provided in the beginning of the Program Standards assist with the interpretation and application of the standards. The proposed changes will ensure that the Program Standards are more uniformly followed and applied.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

that the Conference Chair send a letter to the FDA Commissioner requesting:

  1. that the Definitions in the Program Standards be amended to include designation in numerical order, and
  2. that the following definition be added:

Self-Assessment Update - Comparison of one or more program elements against the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards between the required 60-month, periodic Self-Assessments.
