Report - Program Standards Committee

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The Conference for Food Protection (CFP) Program Standards Committee seeks Council II's acknowledgment of the committee's final report.

Public Health Significance

The Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards were developed to serve as a guide for regulatory retail food program managers in the design, management, and execution of a retail food program with the public health outcome of reducing foodborne illness risk factors. The Program Standards Committee continues to work with the FDA internal Program Standards working group and the FDA Clearinghouse Workgroup to clarify and address issues that arise with the Standards. The efforts of this committee over the past two years have been to provide feedback to the FDA on 2012 CFP-approved changes to the Program Standards and to initiate a long-term project to identify resource linkages and platforms that will assist enrollees in taking the necessary steps towards success in meeting the Program Standards.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

1. Acknowledgement of the 2012-2014 Program Standards Committee Report, and

2. acknowledgment of the committee members for their participation on the conference calls and work completed.
