The CFP Certification of Food Safety Regulation Professionals (CFSRP) Work Group seeks the Conference's acknowledgement of Part B of its report summarizing the data and feedback received from the 14 State and local jurisdictions that participated in the Uniform Inspection Program Audit Pilot Project.

Public Health Significance

The 2010 Conference charged the CFSRP Work Group with coordinating a pilot project that assessed the appropriateness of using a customized version of the FDA Retail Food Level I Performance Audit process and forms with a limited number of jurisdictions enrolled in the FDA Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards. One of the intended outcomes of the pilot project was to assess the feasibility for incorporating the Uniform Inspection Program Audit process and Audit Worksheet as model template contained in an Appendix to Standard 4.

The CFP Guide to the Uniform Inspection Program Audit, Audit Worksheet, and Audit Reference Guide used for the pilot study are available on the CFP web link:

The pilot project report summarizes the feedback from the participating jurisdictions who:

  • Determined the strengths and weaknesses of the Uniform Inspection Program Audit process, Audit Worksheet, instructions, and guidance documents.
  • Provided assessments on the ease of use of the documents.
  • Determined the length of time and resource commitment necessary to complete the audit process.
  • Reviewed the 10 inspection program areas and competencies that comprise the Standard 4 criteria for omissions, additions, and items deemed to be not applicable. (A detailed description of the 10 inspection areas and competencies is contained in the Audit Reference Guide available on the CFP web link noted above.)
  • Assessed the appropriateness of including the Uniform Inspection Program Audit process and Audit Worksheet as a model template for Standard 4.

The Uniform Inspection Program Audit Pilot Project Report is included with this Issue as an Attachment.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

The Conference further recommends that an expression of thanks be extended to the 14 State and local jurisdictions (listed in the report Acknowledgements) for their invaluable contributions.
