Understanding FSVP and What It Means for Your Business

The Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) is an important step forward by the FDA. Its regulations require foreign food suppliers to verify that their products meet the same safety standards as those produced domestically. Even food distributed by US suppliers must undergo the same FDA preventative controls if imported from abroad.

The Records You Need Under the Foreign Supplier Verification Program


Make sure your relationships with foreign suppliers are compliant under the FDA’s Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) by reviewing a full list of required records.

It just got a little easier to see the documentation you need when managing foreign suppliers. The FDA has published an up to date list of the records required for the FSVP, a rule established under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) to ensure companies importing foreign food products are compliant with US food safety standards.
