The document provides guidance related to the FDA’s regulatory oversight activities for food products covered by a Systems Recognition Arrangement (SRA) between another country’s food safety authority and FDA.

FDA's guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities. Instead, guidance documents describe our current thinking on a topic and should be viewed only as recommendations, unless specific regulatory or statutory requirements are cited. The use of the word should in FDA guidance means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required.
