Attain FSMA compliance with a robust Foreign Supplier Verification Approval Program.

The FDA’s Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) rule requires importers to perform risk-based foreign supplier verification activities to verify that food is produced in a way that protects public health, is not adulterated, and is not misbranded. To achieve this, you will need to develop and implement an FSVP that meets FDA requirements.

This two-day training is ideal for US-based importers, brokers, suppliers, and business owners. If you own or are the consignee of food at the time of entry, this training can help you understand how to be FSMA compliant.

After this course, you’ll know how to:

  • Develop an FSVP
  • Implement FSVP rules
  • Implement an FSVP recordkeeping system
  • Summarize FDA oversight

Upon completion of this FDA training course, you can print a copy of your FSPCA-issued certificate to show that you’ve completed the training.
