The International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI) is proud to announce the publication of Regulatory Foundations for the Food Protection Professional through the international publishing company, Springer.
Regulatory Foundations for the Food Protection Professional is a comprehensive guide for the entry-level food protection professional (FPP) working in either the public or private sector. The book also serves as a foundation for students in academic programs preparing for a career in food protection. Additionally, as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is implemented, this book will provide valuable information for countries wishing to export foods and food ingredients to the U.S. and comply with U.S. food safety regulations.
The book is based on the Entry-Level component of the National Curriculum Framework for regulators, created by IFPTI. The Entry-Level component of the National Curriculum Framework contains more than twenty content areas, including Epidemiology, Microbiology, Labeling, Food Defense Awareness, Program Standards, Environmental Health and Safety, Sampling, and Allergens.
Each chapter is organized by specific learning objectives aimed at equipping the entry-level FPP with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully perform his or her job, whether in the public or private sector, and whether in food safety or food defense.
“Regulatory Foundations for the Food Protection Professional is a significant accomplishment – one that will help us achieve a truly integrated food safety system,” said J. Joseph Corby, Executive Director of the Association of Food and Drug Officials.
“Regulatory Foundations for the Food Protection Professional contains what every entry-level food protection professional should know,” said Dr. Julia Bradsher, co-editor of the book and President and CEO of IFPTI. “Whether an individual is looking to enter into the food protection field, or looking for materials for professional development and for reference – this book offers a comprehensive foundational understanding of the food protection sector.”
IFPTI plans to build upon Regulatory Foundations for the Food Protection Professional by publishing future volumes that will address advanced content areas for food protection professionals.
