Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers

Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA):

Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals

As part of the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued several rules to further clarify the requirements of the regulations. This is one of these rules, which was developed after extensive consultation with numerous stakeholders.

Scope:
The rule governing Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals applies to importers, defined for this purpose as the US owner or consignee of a food offered for import into the United States. If there is no such entity, the importer is considered to be the US agency or representative of the foreign owner or consignee at the time of entry, as confirmed in a signed statement of consent.
