The Association of Food and Drug Officials of the Southern States (AFDOSS) is a Regional Affiliate of the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO). AFDO is an international non-profit democratically run organization. Membership includes members from local, state and federal regulatory agencies, regulated industry and academia who are concerned with the development and enforcement of uniform food, drug and consumer product safety laws and regulations.

AFDOSS is comprised of food and drug officials and interested associates in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

Through resolutions, AFDOSS submits recommendations to the international association (AFDO) for suggested actions needed in the aforementioned areas. The end result is the development of “model bills”, the encouragement of training, and the overall implementation of sound and effective consumer protection regulation.
