This course is designed for:
1. U.S.based importers who meet the definition of “importer” in
the FSVP rule, which includes those who own or are the
consignee of food at the time of entry, or, if no owner of
consignee exists, the U.S. agent or representative of the
foreign owner.

2. Others who have an interest in ensuring that the requirements
of the FSVP rule are met, including brokers, exporters, foreign
suppliers of food that will be exported to the U.S.,
persons/business owners who currently buy food from
foreign sources, and representatives of foreign governments.

Foreign Supplier Verification Program Rule
The Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) final rule
applies to most entities who import food into the United States
from abroad, including domestic facilities and food brokers. For
each food it imports, an importer would be required to develop,
maintain, and follow a Foreign Supplier Verification Program that
provides “adequate assurances” that its foreign supplier is
producing the food in compliance with processes and procedures
that provide “at least the same level of public health protection” as
FDA’s standards for preventive controls and produce safety, if
either is applicable. The foreign supplier must also demonstrate
that it is producing the food in compliance with the adulteration
and allergen-labeling requirements of the Food Drug and
Cosmetic Act (Sections 402 and 403(w), respectively).

Importers are responsible for actions that include: (i) determining
known or reasonably foreseeable hazards with each food
imported, (ii) evaluating the risk posed by the food, based on the
hazard analysis, and the foreign supplier’s performance, (iii) using
that evaluation of the risk posed by an imported food and the
supplier’s performance to approve suppliers and determine
appropriate supplier verification activities, (iv) conducting supplier
verification activities, and (v) conducting corrective actions.
