This course is a training curriculum that will provide participants with an understanding of the requirements of the “Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals” regulation. This curriculum was designed by regulatory, academic, and industry professionals and was developed with funding from FDA as part of the FSPCA.

Importers covered by the FSVP regulation must put in place foreign supplier verification programs (FSVPs) to verify that their foreign suppliers are producing food using processes and procedures that provide the same level of public health protection as those required under the preventive controls (for human or animal food) or produce safety regulations, as appropriate, and to ensure that the supplier’s food is not adulterated and is not misbranded with respect to allergen
labeling (21 CFR 1.502(a)).

Who Is Covered by the FSVP Rule?
The FSVP importer is the U.S. owner or consignee of the food offered for import (i.e., owns the food, has purchased it, or has agreed in writing to purchase it at the time of U.S. entry). If there is no U.S.
owner or consignee at time of entry, the FSVP importer is the U.S. agent/representative of the foreign owner/consignee, as confirmed in a signed statement of consent. The key is that there be a FSVP
importer in the United States who takes responsibility for meeting the FSVP requirements.
