Retail Program Standards Symposium

The Retail Program Standards Symposium was established to provide support and education for retail food safety jurisdictions at State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) levels, whether just beginning with the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (Retail Program Standards) or maintaining conformance.
