Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards

USA

Aug 24, 2022

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)  issued the 2022 edition of the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (Retail Program Standards) to detail the key elements of an effective retail food regulatory program for state, local, tribal and territorial regulatory agencies.

The Retail Program Standards provide recommendations for designing and managing retail food regulatory programs and help regulatory jurisdictions (or other responsible organizations) facilitate more effective inspections, implement foodborne illness prevention strategies, and identify program areas in need of improvement.

The FDA developed these standards with input from federal, state, and local regulatory officials, as well as industry, trade associations, academia, and consumers.
