    I work at a local health department and am the district standardization officer. I train staff to conduct retail foodservice facility inspections. I keep looking for any requirements that may come about as a result of FSMA including guidances procedures, requirements/regulations or processes that may affect our work at the local level with retail foodservice.

    Oregon passed HB 3100 in July of 2015 which requires each county Health Dept to do a self-assessment of their capacities and expertise/knowledge in many public health areas. As the Env. Health supervisor I’m charged with doing our EH self-assessment. I was just wondering if you could send me info on the Food Safety Modernization Act so I could see if there are similarities in the narratives of it and our Oregon Modernization bill.
