FSPCA FOREIGN SUPPLIER VERIFICATION PROGRAMS (FSVP) COURSE
Description: This course will provide participants with the knowledge to implement the requirements of the “Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals” regulation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is one of a number of regulations and guidance that implement the provisions of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which focuses on safe food practices. This course is designed for:
- 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.
- 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 and/or business owners who currently buy food from foreign sources, and representatives of foreign governments.
The FSVP curriculum was designed by regulatory, academic, and industry professionals and developed with funding from the 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. Furthermore, attending this course, will help you understand the FSVP requirements and how those requirements can be met in your particular circumstance.
The FSVP training is in English but answers can be given in Spanish, if it’s necessary.
As I am the Lead Instructor of Preventive Controls for Human and Animal Food, as well as the Lead Trainer of the PSA (Produce), the answers are very clear even for those who do not know about food safety.
Other courses on-site: PCQI for Human or Animal food and the PSA course for growers (these three training courses are available in English or Spanish.)
