The Foreign Suppliers Verification Programs (FSVP) Importer Portal for FSVP Records Submission is a means for importers to upload FSVP records electronically to the Agency, after receiving a written request from FDA for the records.
The FSMA Final Rule on FSVP requires importers to perform risk-based foreign supplier verification activities to verify that:
- The food is produced in a manner that provides the same level of public health protection as section 418 (concerning hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls) or 419 (concerning standards for the safe production and harvesting of certain fruits and vegetables that are raw agricultural commodities (RACs) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 350g and 350h), if applicable;
- The food is not adulterated under section 402 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 342); and
- The human food is not misbranded under section 403(w) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 343(w)) (concerning food allergen labeling).
