FSMA-FSVP Certification Program

FSMA-FSVP: An Overview

Food Safety Modernization Act

Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is a set of rules that give FDA new authority to regulate how foods are grown, harvested and processed. The act mandates that the foods imported from foreign countries have high standards to meet domestic food requirements. FSMA has 7 Preventive Control Rules for Food, including Produce Safety Rule, FSVP Rule, Accredited Third-Party Certification, Sanitary Transportation Rule, Intentional Adulteration Rule and Complying with FSMA.

Foreign Supplier Verification Program

Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) regulated by FDA mandates that importers perform specific risk-based activities to ascertain that food imported to USA is produced in a manner that meets applicable US safety standards. FSVP is similar to the SFCR in Canada which verifies and proves to CFIA that the food Canadian importers import meets regulations and standards.

US Importers of Canadian Foods

US and Canada have developed FSSRA (Food Safety Systems Recognition Arrangement). The FDA FSVP applies a revised set of regulations for US importers when they import food that is covered under the FSSRA from Canadian manufacturers that are in compliance with the CIFA. This makes it easier for US and Canadian imports and exports. If you manufacture, process, preserve, treat, package, grade, label for inter-provincial trade or export fish products using a meat product as an ingredient must have an SFC license to conduct these activities or imported by an SFC license holder.

Why Choose FSMA-FSVP Certification?

FSMA FSVP certification enables overseas suppliers (non-US suppliers of food products) to procure certification following an audit. It reduces the requirements of various supplier audits required by US importers by undergoing one certification audit.
