FSMA Public Meeting on Focus on Strategic Implementation of Prevention-Oriented Import Safety Programs

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held three one-day public meetings, entitled “FDA Food Safety Modernization Act: Focus on Strategic Implementation of Prevention-Oriented Import Safety Programs.” The public meetings were held in different regions throughout the United States to provide importers and other interested persons an opportunity to have an in-depth discussion on the implementation of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) import safety programs, (i.e. foreign supplier verification programs (FSVPs) for importers of food for humans and animals, accreditation of third-party certification bodies and FDA’s Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP).

Comments and feedback from importers and other interested parties that attended the meetings were collected and are available in the FDA FSMA Regional Outreach Meetings Report.
