Importing food & beverages into the United States can be complex and costly. The Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) Rule requires importers to verify that their foreign suppliers of food for human and animal consumption meet applicable FDA safety standards. FDA’s Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP) (TPP) established by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) provides expedited review and importation of human and animal foods into the United States for approved applicants who achieve and maintain a high level of control over the safety and security of their supply chains.
This complimentary webinar will cover the following topics:
- Validating your FSVP
- Major issues found by FDA
- VQIP importers’ role
- Eligibility and benefits
- VQIP legalities and consequences
- DNV GL FSMA third-party certification
