The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) has been awarded a five-year, $5 million cooperative agreement to develop and implement critically needed training for state, local, territorial, and tribal food safety agencies. This training will assist the FDA in meeting the requirements of Section 209(a) of FDA’s FSMA and fully develop an integrated food safety system (IFSS). Under the agreement, NEHA will also research training needs for IFSS food and feed inspectors and regulators, train instructors to meet FDA-identified competencies, oversee/audit course instructors, deliver IFSS food-related training courses, and develop new courses based on feedback from the training needs assessment responses. Training records will be maintained for course participants and instructors; course certificates will be issued to those who successfully complete training.
