This Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) Blended Training course was developed to provide an alternative way for individuals to complete the FSPCA Foreign Supplier Verification Programs course. Attending this course will help you understand the FSVP requirements and how those requirements can be met in your particular circumstance. The Blended course consists of 2 parts. Part 1 is online https://www.ifsh.iit.edu/fspca/courses/foreign-supplier-verification-programs-fsvp#FSPCA-Foreign-Supplier-VPBC , and Part 2 is instructor-led. Both parts must be completed in order to obtain the certificate of attendance.
This FSVP course does not cover products, such as seafood, which are exempt from FSVP. The primary focus addresses other products that fall under FDA’s jurisdiction (i.e., fruits, vegetables, prepared foods, additives, spices, coffee, etc). This 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). The goal is to help you understand what documents and records you need to maintain to be compliant with 21 CFR 1, 11, 111 (FSVP) https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2015/11/27/2015-28158/foreign-supplier-verification-programs-for-importers-of-food-for-humans-and-animals .

- U.S based importers who meet the definition of “importer” in theFSVPrule, 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.
- Others who have an interest in ensuring that the requirements of theFSVPrule 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.
