FDA Updates Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards

USA

Oct 31, 2019

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today issued revised food safety standards for state regulatory programs that oversee food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods. These regulatory program standards, known as the Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards (MFRPS), were first issued by the agency in May 2007 and are updated every three years. The 2019 changes include updates to defined terms, new appendices and job aides, as well as updates to the current standards.

The agency established a committee comprised of officials from FDA and state agencies responsible for the regulation and inspection of food facilities to develop and update the MFRPS as a set of quality standards for manufactured food regulatory programs.
