Click here to learn more and register!

The Illinois Program Standards Network is sponsoring a Self-Assessment and Verification Audit Workshop in April 2024. The two-and-a-half-day, in-person workshop will be open to all jurisdictions enrolled in the Retail Food Program Standards; however, jurisdictions in Illinois will have priority for workshop registration. Seats are limited to two participants per jurisdiction.

Registration is now open, but space is limited, sign up today!

Workshop Overview

The Standards Self-Assessment and Verification Audit Workshop is designed to provide participants with an overview of the Retail Program Standards criteria and an in-depth understanding of the self-assessment and verification audit processes, worksheets, and forms. The workshop will enable participants to:

  • Identify the requirements for each of the nine Retail Food Program Standards;
  • Explore various approaches to meeting the criteria within the Retail Food Program Standards;
  • Use the Retail Food Program Standards worksheets and forms to complete a verification audit of a jurisdiction’s self-assessment against the criteria contained in the standards; and
  • Use the worksheets and forms to electronically compile and maintain results.

Target Audience

Participants should be program managers or those directly responsible for conducting program self-assessments and preparing for verification audits. Interactive workshop exercises have been developed for each of the nine Retail Food Program Standards and are designed to provide participants with hands-on experience in preparation for conducting a self-assessment or a verification audit.

Workshop Prerequisites

Participants should have a good understanding of the criteria contained in each of the nine Retail Program Standards. An orientation on using FDA’s Retail Program Standards website, including the downloadable files and worksheets, will be provided at the workshop.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact [email protected]
