Animal Food Framework

IFPTI is playing a crucial role in setting the competency standard for Animal Food Control Officials through the development of the Animal Food Framework (shown below). IFPTI led the development of competencies for the content areas identified in the Framework and is currently overseeing the development of course content by a team of state and federal Subject Matter Experts.

The Animal Food Framework will help animal feed control officials:

  • ensure consistent performance expectations;
  • identify training gaps and inform training curricula;
  • catalog existing learning events (training, courses, etc.); and
  • ¬†create career-spanning professional development learning paths.


The Animal Food Framework project is a collaborative effort involving IFPTI and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
