Complying with the New Foreign Supplier Verification & Third Party Accreditation Rules


The implementation period for the FDA FSMA final rules for the Foreign Supplier Verification (FSVP) and Third Party Accreditation programs began in May 2017. Regardless of your ability to understand these new rules, the implementation period has begun. The implications of these newly published FSMA rules go far beyond what their titles imply. The FDA FSMA rules are based on the ideas that risk can be reduced through preventive approaches not widely understood or followed in the food industry. The final FSVP and Third Party Accreditation rules rely heavily on new rules for Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC), environmental monitoring, validation and validation of preventive controls. Thus, it is critical to begin to understand how the FDA has interwoven the FSMA into a more compact and focused set of rules than proposed rules might have led us to believe.

Join expert speaker Dr. John Ryan for a review of earlier final rules and a summary of the final FSVP and Third Party Accreditation rules. This session will help domestic food importers and exporters protect themselves based on FDA recommendations. More importantly, the Third Party Accreditation Rules need to be understood by all food industry personnel because earlier established food safety standards and audits will be changing to accommodate the new rules.
