Summary: Foreign Supplier Verification Program (Final Rule)

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) final rule on Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals requires that importers perform certain risk-based activities to verify that food imported into the United States has been produced in a manner that meets U.S. safety standards. The regulation is designed to be flexible based on risk, and the requirements vary based on the type of food product and category of importer.
