Importers of Food Have a Special Requirment that Must be Met.

Are you meeting FSVP responsibilities?

Are you sure?

FSVP (Foreign Supplier Verification Program) is a recent FDA program requiring every company bringing food into the United States to have a US based representative responsible for keeping records on their supply chain. 

Food Included in the Regulation Registration pertains only to facilities that manufacture/process, pack, or hold food, as defined in 21 CFR 1.227, for consumption by humans or animals in the United States.

FSVP Does Not Apply To These Foods:

•      Fish and Fishery Products (in compliance with part 123), or certain ingredients for use in fish & fishery products in compliance with part 123

•      Juice (in compliance with part 120), or certain ingredients for use in juice products in compliance with part 123
