Foreign Supplier Verification Program
We now offer a comprehensive study of the compliance requirements for the FDA's Foreign Supplier Verification Program for yourself or your team. This program covers verification procedures for all imported food shipments of food subject to the Preventive Control rule or the Standards for Produce Safety rule, where from time of entry the FDA requires the food importer to declare through Customs’ and FDA’s electronic entry filing systems the Name, the Facility Address, and the Unique Identifier (the DUNS#) of the person designated as the “FSVP importer” for the shipment.
You may be the FDA Registered FSVP Importer:
“The U.S. owner or consignee of the imported food product at the time of entry. This includes the party in the U.S. who is the actual owner or purchaser of the food at the time of entry. This could include a U.S. party who has agreed in writing to purchase the food.
