Starting May 30, 2017, FDA will begin implementing the FDA’s Food Supplier Verification Program (FSVP).
Under new FDA regulations, US food importers for the first time must ensure that imported food for humans and animal is as safe as domestically produced food. It is up to each importer to establish their own FSVP.
In addition, as of May 30, each entry filing of food products offered for import into the U.S. must include the name, contact info, and DUNS # of the FSVP Importer.
See our previous blog post on this topic for more details and requirements.
