Inspections of Domestic Food Facilities

FDA is responsible for safeguarding the Nation's food supply by ensuring that all food ingredients are safe and that food is free of disease-causing organisms, chemicals, or other harmful substances. To carry out this responsibility, FDA inspects food facilities to ensure food safety and compliance with regulations. Additionally, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) established criteria for designating a domestic facility as high risk and mandated frequencies for FDA to complete inspections of domestic facilities designated high risk and non-high risk. We will review FDA's domestic inspection program and assess whether FDA is on track to meet the inspection frequencies required by FSMA.
