  • Review records, observe plant operations and conduct hands-on verification to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

    You will prepare detailed documentation (Non-Compliance Records) of noncompliance with regulatory requirements.

    You will determine when regulatory control action is necessary. You will assess whether the plants corrective or preventative actions are acceptable and effective, if there are trends in noncompliance, or if enforcement action is warranted.

  • Conduct regulatory oversight activities inside plants in matters relating to other consumer protections (e.g., economic adulteration and misbranding).

  • Have contact with plant managers, owners and others to explain legal and regulatory requirements, discuss operation of the plants SSOP, HACCP plan and other food safety programs. You will communicate on and defend determinations on noncompliance issues and discuss plans for addressing non-compliance.

    You will also work with a variety of individuals to resolve problems, clarify differences of interpretation concerning HACCP and other food safety or consumer protection requirements and you will advise other Agency inspectors, supervisors and officers on inspection and enforcement matters for which you are involved. You may conduct various samplings, surveys and tests to obtain pertinent data on potential problem areas, industry trends, or other issues of current interest to the Agency.
