ANSI-CFP Accreditation Program
On June 17, 2002, ANSI implemented the ANSI-Conference for Food Protection (CFP) accreditation program. ANSI and the Conference for Food Protection entered into a cooperative agreement to accredit organizations involved in the certification of food protection managers. This new program is based on the Conference for Food Protection Accreditation Standards.
The Conference for Food Protection is a non-profit organization that originated in 1971. The structure of the conference provides a representative and equitable partnership among regulators, industry, academia, professional organizations, and consumers to identify problems, formulate recommendations, and develop and implement practices that ensure food safety. New rapidly developing food technologies and marketing innovations challenge all groups involved in food production and monitoring to work together to enhance the quality of the food supply. The Conference for Food Protection meets at least biennially to provide that forum.
