The Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) rule on Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) for importers of food for humans and animals is now final, and compliance dates for some businesses begins May 30, 2017. The FSVP impacts most AHPA members in some way.

The final rule requires that importers perform certain risk-based activities to verify that food imported into the U.S. has been produced in a manner that meets applicable U.S. safety standards. The FSVP rule is the product of a significant level of outreach by the FDA to industry, consumer groups, the agency’s federal, state, local, tribal and international regulatory counterparts, academia and other stakeholders. How prepared are you to comply with FSMA’s FSVP? Are you fully informed about how FSMA affects imported products and raw materials and how this affects your business? This webinar will help you understand what your business must do under FSMA. It features a panel of regulatory experts who provide a roadmap to FSMA’s FSVP requirements and teach you how to become compliant with the FSVP.

A 30-minute Q&A session follows the speaker presentations and answers specific questions.


  • With regards to the FSVP, what is required under FSMA, and what are FDA’s expectations?
  • Is industry complying with the FSVP?
  • How does VQIP factor into the FSVP?

The book is available in hardback print and online formats. Both versions contain the same information, but the online version, which is optimized for smartphones and tablets, has several additional attributes. Some of these relate to its operation, as it allows subscribers to search for keywords and botanical names and easily access the information they use most by saving personalized lists of entries. Perhaps more importantly, the online version will be updated regularly with new research, and subscribers will be notified of updates to provide immediate access to the most current information. The standard retail cost for either version is $119.95 (one-time cost in print; a renewable annual subscription online). We are discounting the cost for our members and would be happy to offer a discount to other organizations. A free preview of several entries are available online:
