Report – Demonstration of Knowledge (DOK) Committee

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

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

Public Health Significance

The 2014 biennial meeting established the Demonstration of Knowledge (DOK) Committee to review the current methods in Section 2-102.11 of the 2013 FDA Food Code for a Person in Charge (PIC) to demonstrate knowledge and to identify methods that could be used by the PIC to demonstrate knowledge when the PIC is not a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) or the CFPM is not onsite. The 2014 - 2016 DOK Committee completed its charges except for assessing the pros and cons of each of the alternative methods the committee identified. The 2016 biennial meeting re-created the Demonstration of Knowledge Committee to continue work to evaluate each of those ten alternative methods and to recommend alternative methods for demonstrating knowledge as new or amended Food Code language. The 2016 - 2018 DOK Committee has completed its charges.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

acknowledgement of the 2016 - 2018 Demonstration of Knowledge Committee Final Report, thanking the committee members for the completed work, and disbanding the committee because all assigned charges have been completed.
