PSC 6 - Posting Self-Assessment Audit Verification Tool

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The Program Standards Committee has completed charge 2(b) outlined in the Recommendations for Issue 2016 II - 009 as it relates to recognizing agencies for partial achievement of the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (VNRFRPS). The committee recommends enrollees use a self-assessment tool which has been developed by the FDA to assist with documenting partial achievement.

Public Health Significance

The VNRFRPS offer a systematic approach, through a continuous improvement process, to enhance retail food regulatory programs. The primary role of the CFP Program Standards Committee is to indirectly assist enrolled jurisdictions in making progress towards meeting the Standards. In charge 2(b) in Issue 2016 II-009, the Committee was charged to "Identify different approaches that could be used to recognize partial achievement of the Retail Program Standards that would not require additional resources to perform or administer." The Committee determined that the Self-Assessment - Audit Verification Summary & Gap Analysis document developed by the FDA is a useful tool that can help monitor a jurisdiction's progress towards meeting the VNRFRPS.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

that a letter be sent to the FDA requesting approval to post on the CFP website the document titled "Self-Assessment - Audit Verification Summary & Gap Analysis" developed by FDA to assist jurisdictions in monitoring and tracking progress with the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (VNRFRPS); document is to be posted in Microsoft Excel format as an interactive spreadsheet.
