Foreign Supplier Verification Program Workshop

Intended to ensure the safety of imported food into the United States

This 2-Day FSPCA curriculum will provide you the tools to comply with the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Human and Animal regulation.

The Preventive Controls for FSVP regulation is intended to ensure the safety of imported food into the United States. The regulation requires importers to verify that food they import into the United States is produced in compliance with the hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls and standards to meet the safety provisions of FDA, is not adulterated, and is not misbranded with respect to food allergen labeling.

  • You are a foreign supplier of food that will be exported to the US;
  • You are a person who needs to ensure that the requirements of the FSVP rule are met, such as brokers, exporters, business owners who currently buy food from foreign sources, and representatives of foreign governments; OR,
  • Retailers who import products, manufacturers who import ingredients and food-contact packaging materials, consultants, and third-party auditors
