Register Today for ANSI-CFP Accreditation Workshop


Course Dates: May 29-30 in Washington, DC

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites all interested stakeholders to register for its two-day ANSI-CFP Accreditation Workshop on May 29-30, 2019, at ANSI headquarters in Washington, DC.

The Conference for Food Protection is an independent, voluntary, non-profit organization that has identified the essential components of a nationally recognized Food Protection Manager Certification Program. On June 17, 2002, ANSI and the Conference for Food Protection entered into a cooperative agreement to accredit organizations involved in the certification of food protection managers. ANSI-CFP accreditation ensures that credential holders with an accredited food protection manager certification have undergone a valid assessment and have the necessary competencies to ensure safety in food establishments.

Whether your organization is pursuing ANSI-CFP accreditation, already accredited, or just curious about the process, the workshop is a valuable tool for understanding the increasing acceptance of this nationally recognized standard. Registrants will participate in presentations, small group discussions, and exercises to get a better understanding of what ANSI expects organizations to provide as demonstration of compliance to each of the requirements. In addition, attendees will be able to self-assess their own operations, and identify areas needing improvement prior to applying for ANSI accreditation.

For more information, visit Please note that workshop hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on May 29, and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on May 30. Register now.
