The Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) proposed rule established requirements relating to FSVPs for importers of food for humans and animals. The previously proposed regulations would require importers to conduct activities to verify that food imported into the United States is produced in compliance with processes and procedures, including reasonably appropriate risk-based preventive controls, that provide the same level of public health protection as those required under the hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls and standards for produce safety sections of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as well as verify that the food they import is not adulterated and is not misbranded with respect to food allergen labeling. The proposed regulations would help ensure that imported food is produced in a manner consistent with U.S. standards. In a Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, we are proposing a number of revisions to the proposed rule. The substantive changes, that we believe require us to revise the preliminary regulatory impact analysis (PRIA) for the proposed rule, are outlined in this document.
