FOREIGN SUPPLIER VERIFICATION PROGRAM (FSVP)

FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires importers to verify that the food they are importing into the United States has been produced in a manner that meets applicable U.S. food safety standards.

  • FSVP importer may or not be the same entity that serves as the “Importers of Record” for purposes of U.S. Customs and Border Protection requirements
  •  U.S. owner or consignee of an article of food that is being offered for import into the United States
  •  U.S. agent or representative of the foreign owner or consignee at the time of entry

Because of the travel restrictions, social distancing, and other advisories associated with the COVID-19 outbreak, the FDA has determined that most routine onsite inspections are temporarily impractical to conduct at this time. Therefore, the Agency will shift to temporarily conducting FSVP inspections remotely, electronically or by other prompt means, until further notice.
