Foreign Supplier Verification Program – What Does It Mean For Your Business

If you export food, food ingredients, food packaging, dietary supplements or food additives to the United States, your U.S. Importer will soon require that you provide documentation verifying that your company is compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This could include compliance with a range of new rules, including "Preventive Controls for Human Foods (PCHF)", "Preventive Controls for Animal Feeds (PCAF)", and Produce Safety regulations.

What does that mean for your business? What kinds of documents will your business be asked to provide?

Join EAS Consulting Group Independent Advisor for FSMA, Charles Breen and EAS Independent Consultant Dr. Susan Moyers in a webinar directed at foreign embassy staff, and foreign food, food ingredient and food additive firms who export to the United States.

Beginning May 26, 2017, FDA’s “Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP)” goes into effect for large firms; smaller firms may have additional time to comply. The FSVP requires U.S. importers to verify that their foreign suppliers of food, food packaging, food ingredients, dietary supplements and/or food additives imported to the U.S. possess the same level of public health protection as is offered by domestic producers.

In a related FSMA regulation, the FDA is also offering an optional “fast-track” in 2018 for manufacturers who have a documented safety policy and a solid record of safety in their products.

In an exclusive webinar for EAS, Charles Breen and Dr. Susan Moyers will help foreign firms understand the requirements and documents that they will have to meet under FSMA and what U.S. importers will be expecting from them.
