FDA FSMA Course Training
What is an FSVP?
FSVP = Foreign Supplier Verification Programs
It is a program that importers covered by the rule must have in place to verify that their foreign suppliers are producing food in a manner that provides the same level of public health protection as the preventive controls or produce safety regulations, as appropriate, and to ensure that the supplier’s food is not adulterated and is not misbranded with respect to allergen labeling.
Who Must Comply?
“Importer” is U.S. owner or consignee of a food at time of U.S. entry.
If no U.S. owner or consignee at entry, importer is U.S. agent or representative of the foreign owner or consignee, as confirmed in signed statement of consent.
