Description

Developed by the FSPCA, this course is designed to help you understand how to meet the Foreign Supplier Verification Program rule requirements under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This course is taught by FSPCA instructors for FSVP and will provide participants with an understanding of the requirements of the FSMA FSVP rule for importers of food for humans and animals.

You will gain the knowledge to implement the requirements of the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals regulation of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is one of a number of regulations and guidance that implement the provisions of FSMA, which focuses on safe food practices.

Objectives

You will learn how to:

  • Explain the underlying purpose of the FSVP rule
  • Develop an FSVP
  • Implement an FSVP
  • Implement an FSVP record-keeping system
  • Summarize FDA oversight

Audience

This course is designed for:

  1. U.S.‐based importers who meet the definition of “importer” in the FSVP rule, which includes those who own or are the consignee of food at the time of entry, or, if no owner or consignee exists, the U.S. agent or representative of the foreign owner.
  2. Others who have an interest in ensuring that the requirements of the FSVP rule are met, including brokers, exporters, foreign suppliers of food that will be exported to the U.S., persons/business owners who currently buy food from foreign sources, and representatives of foreign governments. 

The FSVP curriculum was designed by regulatory, academia, and industry professionals and developed with funding from FDA as part of the FSPCA. In contrast to the Preventive Controls (PC) rules, the FSVP rule does not require you to attend a training program following a “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA. Attending this course, however, will help you understand the FSVP requirements and how those requirements can be met in your particular circumstance.

Learners attending the virtual course option will need a computer with internet connection and a telephone connection for the full duration.
