State-Inspected Establishments Interested in Applying

To participate as a plant, you’ll need to apply through an agency administrating the state MPI program.  Once you complete your application then, the state will evaluate your submission and based on their findings, will or will not recommend you for the CIS program.

To be considered for CIS by your state, you will need to have the following requirements:

  • Must employ fewer than 25 employees;
  • Have an adequate food safety system; and
  • Meet appropriate facility standards.

Once the state determines you qualify then it will submit a recommendation on your behalf to the FSIS District Office for your state

After the District Office reviews the state’s recommendation and accepts your application then you will need to comply with all the requirements under the Federal Acts as follows:

  • Meet the Federal regulatory sanitation performance standards in Title 9 CFR parts 416.1 through 416.5;
  • Submit labels to the FSIS select establishment coordinator with the Office of Field Operations who will forward the labels to the FSIS Labeling and Program Delivery Division for review, except for those labels eligible for generic approval;
  • Obtain the same water source and sewage system approval that FSIS requires for federally-regulated establishments;
  • Develop written Standard Sanitation Operation Procedures (SSOP) as noted in 9 CFR 416.11 through 416.16; and
  • Write a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Plan in compliance with 9 CFR Part 417.

These are the requirements to obtain a Federal grant of inspection. You must comply with all of them in order to be selected into the CIS program.
