Risk Control Review (RCR) Process For Assessing Reportable Food Reports
When a report is submitted to the Reportable Food electronic portal, it is sent to the Risk Control Review (RCR) Team for review. The RCR Team includes the following FDA organizations: the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), the Office of Emergency Operations (OEO), and then Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA). In addition, the FDA District Office for the geographic area from which the report originated receives a copy and participates in the review. Each report is reviewed to assess whether the subject food or feed meets the definition of a reportable food, and to identify appropriate follow-up actions.
