Laboratories may be invited to participate in national special safety exercises and FDA missions. Samples can be taken from other organizations (e.g. FDA.B or a 3rd party) and submitted for analysis to participating laboratories. The targeted outcome of this cooperation programme is to promote efforts to establish a Nationally Integrated Food Security System (IFSS) by supporting the Manufactured Food Regulatory Standards (MFRPS), Rapid Response Teams (RRTs) and Food Protection Task Force (FPTF) programmes, as well as specific projects in support of these programmes. This cooperation agreement is intended to help the FDA develop, implement and enhance a unique national system of support and accompanying resources for public and territorial regulators responsible for regulatory oversight and accountability of raw materials regulated by the FDA Safety Rule. This track is an extension of the current Cooperative Agreement Flexible Fund Model (FFM) to preventive controls for human food. This track is a complement to the current MFRPS track under the cooperation program. The purpose of this expansion is to assist state-made food regulatory programs in adopting and implementing the Preventive Controls of Human Food (PCHF) Regulation, codified as 21 CFR Part 117. PCHF aims to ensure the safe production, processing, packaging and preservation of food for human consumption in the United States. This objective is divided into several general activities aimed at improving and supporting the implementation of the PCHF rule and other human food rules related to the FSMA. A map of the United States, with 40 FDA-funded cooperation agreements on the lab`s flexible funding model, indicates that retail program standards define what constitutes a highly effective and responsive program for the regulation of food distribution and food distribution companies.
