Establish a Quality Assurance OfficeProvides federal funds to meet the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act, which was signed into law on January 4, 2011. As part of this legislation, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that all laboratories performing testing under this act to be accredited. The funding will allow the laboratory to prepare for the accreditation requirements. Without the accreditation, the laboratory would be unable to provide testing services under the Food Modernization Act and would be limited in the laboratory support it could provide to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to support food safety in Virginia.
