FDA Issues Updated Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards

FDA has issued an updated Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards (MFRPS) for state regulatory programs that oversee food facilities.

  • Since May 2007, FDA has issued regulatory program standards, known as the Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards (MFRPS), for state regulatory programs that oversee food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods. FDA touts the MFRPS as an important component in establishing the national Integrated Food Safety System. An MFRPS fact sheet is available here.

  • On October 5, 2016, the FDA issued a revised MFRPS. The 2016 updates include newly defined terms, new sections and appendices, as well as updates to the current standards. A summary of the changes is available here.

  • Industry stakeholders should review the updated MFRPS to understand how federal and state authorities are directing their regulatory activities toward reducing foodborne illness hazards in plants that manufacture, process, pack or hold foods.
