Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP):
The Preventive Controls for Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) regulation is designed to help ensure the safety of imported food and ingredients that come into the United States. Food processors and manufacturers who use imported products must assure their Supply Chain partners’ products fully comply with these FDA standards and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations and guidelines. This includes verifying importers’ hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls and practices meet these guidelines, both in their foreign based production facilities, and also as the food ingredients travel through the supply chain and come into port in the United States. If you manufacture food products using foreign sourced ingredients, it’s a vital part of your Food Safety practices. Your Missouri Enterprise Food Safety Project Managers can help you understand the requirements and best practices for compliance.
