This 2 day live-virtual interactive 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). Upon successful completion, participants will receive the official FSPCA certificate issued by the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO).

This course is designed for:

  1. 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.

  2. 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/business owners who currently buy food from foreign sources, and representatives of foreign governments.Learning this course will enable you to understand the requirements of the FSVP rule and how these requirements can be met. It will also help you to become a Qualified Individual under this rule.
