Understand the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs Requirements

The Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals regulation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is one of several regulations and guidance that implement the provisions of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which focuses on safe food practices.

This final rule on FSVP is the result of inputs from state, federal and local regulatory, academic and industry professionals. In this session, expert speaker Roy E. Costa will provide you with the knowledge required for implementing the requirements of FSVP. Roy will help you understand the FSVP requirements and how those requirements can be met in your individual circumstances.

  • How to develop a risk assessment based on commodities and development of an FSVP
  • The purpose of the Unique Facility Identifier and FSVP Importer DUNS number
  • Understanding of who controls the hazards in imported food
  • Communication within the supply chain
