FSVP Import Agent: Your Gateway to Global Food & Beverages Market

As an FSVP import agent, we are representatives designated by our foreign supplier clients to act on their behalf in complying with the Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FSVP is a preventive control program that requires importers of food for humans and animals into the United States to verify that their foreign suppliers meet U.S. food safety standards.

Our Responsibilities as Your FSVP Agent


Importers must verify that their foreign manufacturers produce food using processes and procedures that meet U.S. safety standards.


Importers must analyze the hazards associated with each food product they import. This includes evaluating biological, chemical, physical, and radiological hazards.


Importers must conduct an evaluation of their foreign supplier’s performance and the risk posed by the food.


If hazards are identified, importers must take corrective actions to ensure the food is not adulterated or misbranded and, if applicable, take appropriate action to prevent recurrence.


Importers are required to reassess the risk posed by each foreign supplier at least every three years, or when there is a significant change in the supplier’s production process or in the importer’s own procedures.


Importers must maintain records documenting their compliance with FSVP requirements. These records should be readily available for inspection by the FDA.


Importers must ensure that individuals who develop and perform the FSVP are qualified to do so, including receiving appropriate training.


Importers must provide specific information to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when filing entries for the food, including their DUNS number, which identifies them as the importer of record.


Importers can also participate in VQIP, a voluntary fee-based program that provides expedited review and importation of human and animal foods into the United States.
