FSRIO's Mission

The Food Safety Research Information Office (FSRIO) is aligned with the Research, Economics, and Education (REE) mission area of United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It was created by the Agricultural Research, Extension and Education Reform Act of 1998 (Note: This is a PDF file) (7 U.S.C.A. & 7654 Sec. 615) and was formally launched on July 2, 2001.

The mission of FSRIO is to provide the research community and the general public with information on publicly funded, and to the maximum extent practicable, privately funded food safety research initiatives. The purpose of the FSRIO information products is to prevent the unintended duplication of food safety research and to assist the executive and legislative branches of the Federal Government and private research entities with assessing food safety research needs and priorities. FSRIO works in cooperation with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), public institutions, and, on a voluntary basis, private research stakeholders. FSRIO works in partnership with a working group that consists of scientific experts in food safety across the USDA.
