Designing an Effective and Compliant FSVP Program
A seminar for importers, brokers and distributors of foods, food ingredients and food packaging
imported into the United States.
September 13 & 15, 2021 from 11am-5pm each day

FDA’s Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) under the Food Safety Modernization Act
(FSMA) regulation places heightened levels of responsibility for ensuring safety on the FSVP
importer and the foreign suppliers. But, failure to have an FSVP program was one of FDA’s
highest FSMA citations in FY 2020.
Join EAS lead instructor and Trainer of Trainers, Jenifer Kane, for the complete FSPCA
curriculum FSVP seminar.
Learn how to:
• What new responsibilities you have as the FSVP importer to ensure the safety of
imported foods,
• Determine if your imported foods require full or modified FSVP standards or are exempt
from the rule,
• Develop or strengthen your written FSVP programs,
• Determine risks of reasonably foreseeable hazards for each type of food imported,
• Develop a robust evaluation and verification program to approve suppliers,
• Maintain required documentation demonstrating compliance with FDA’s regulation,
• And more!
