Register of Food Safety Professionals (RFSP)

IFST’s Register of Food Safety Professionals (RFSP) recognises those working at all levels within food safety throughout the sector and helps build a unified platform for food safety compliance across the food industry and the safety auditing process.

Following considerable cross-sector consultation, the Register offers a three-tiered formal framework that provides an assurance of each registrant’s experience, excellence and professionalism in food safety and integrity.
