If you are an exporter in the US, or US importer for most types of food, food ingredients, food packaging, dietary supplements or food additives, US Customs and Border Patrol is beginning to require additional, new information about the safety of your shipments. You must verify that your company is compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And, you must name an US-based individual or entity who accepts accountability for the safety of the shipments.


What does that mean for you business, logistics, and operations? What kinds of documents will you need to have? Join EAS Consulting Group, EAS Independent Consultant Dr. Susan Moyers in a webinar directed at customs brokers and importers of food into the United States.


Beginning May, 2017, FDA's Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) went into effect for large firms; smaller firms have additional time to comply. The FSVP requires U.S. importers to verify that their foreign suppliers of food, food packaging, food ingredients, dietary supplements and/or food additives imported to the U.S. possess the same level of public health protection as is offered by domestic producers.


In a related FSMA regulation, the FDA is also offering an optional fast-track in 2018 for manufacturers who have a documented safety policy and a solid record of safety in their products. In an exclusive webinar for NCBFAA, Dr. Susan Moyers will help foreign firms understand the requirements and documents that they will have to meet under FSMA and what U.S. importers will be expecting from them.
