Re-create Program Standards Committee

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The Conference of Food Protection (CFP) Program Standards Committee (PSC) requests that the PSC be re-created to serve as a stakeholder group to provide input to the FDA internal working group and continued assessment of the Standards for recommending changes and improvements.

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 in our continued goal of reducing foodborne illness risk factors and promoting active managerial control practices sustaining long term compliance.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

The Program Standards Committee be re-created following the 2012 CFP Biennial Meeting with the following charges:

1. Serve as a stakeholder group to provide input to an FDA internal working group to:

a. Collaborate on the development of an Administrative Procedures Document to support the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards; and

b. Recommend additional changes or improvements to the Program Standards.

2. Explore, assess, and reevaluate Staffing Levels language within Standard No. 8 and recommended any changes.

3. Formulate resolutions to issues brought before the committee and report back at the 2014 CFP Biennial Meeting.
