CFSRP 2– Reassign Charges to the Program Standards Committee

Issue you would like the Conference to consider

The CFSRP Workgroup recommends that it be dissolved as a standalone workgroup and that future issues dealing with the certification of food safety regulation professionals be assigned to the Program Standards Committee in order to ensure a consistent and uniform approach to addressing the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (VNRFRPS).

Public Health Significance

The management of issues relating to the certification of food safety regulation professionals by the Program Standards Committee will eliminate any potential confusion among CFP stakeholders concerning the entity that is responsible for addressing issues related to the VNRFRPS and will also eliminate the potential for redundancy of work related to the VNRFRPS.

Recommended Solution: The Conference recommends...

that the Certification of Food Safety Regulation Professionals (CFSRP) Workgroup be dissolved as a standalone workgroup, and that the remaining subcharges from Issue 2014 II-002, Charge 1 be reassigned to the 2016 - 2018 Program Standards Committee as follows:

Collaborate with the FDA Division of Human Resource Development, and the Partnership for Food Protection Training and Certification Workgroup (PFP TCWG) to:

1. Continue review of all initiatives: existing, new or under development; involving the training, evaluation and/or certification of food safety inspection officers. This collaborative working relationship will ensure the sharing of information so as not to create any unnecessary redundancies in the creation of work product or assignment of tasks/responsibilities.

2. Review the results of the partnership for food protection training and certification work group recommendations for the nationally recognized Retail Food Curriculum based on the Retail Food Job Task Analysis (JTA) to determine if changes are needed in the Standard 2 curriculum. Identify any gaps and recommendations for change and review the time frame for completion of Standard 2 Steps 1 through 4 for new hires or staff newly assigned to the regulatory retail food protection program.

3. Continue to assess if any changes will be needed in Standard 2-Trained Regulatory Staff based on the current standard for review referenced in (1) above to provide better alignment with Standard 4 of the VNRFRPS.

4. Report back their findings and recommendations to the 2018 Biennial Meeting of the Conference for Food Protection.
