Navigating FSMA’s Foreign Supplier Verification Rule


Learn how to be FSMA-ready with an audit-defensible foreign supplier verification program

America imports over $119 billion annually in food (USDA) – nearly triple the value from just 15 years ago. This rapid import growth has triggered significant potential health and safety concerns. FSMA’s final rules include a major focus on foreign supplier verification; food companies now face potential liability and fees for the inspection and re-inspection of both foreign and domestic facilities.

Watch the webinar to hear from John Johnson and Holly Mockus as they review new Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) requirements and share best practices to keep you FSMA ready.

Key Takeaways:

  • Under its new Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) requirements, FSMA now holds imported foods to the same standards as domestic foods
  • Create your FSVP forms with the third party in mind. Take a step back and ask yourself if the third party responsible for reviewing the documents will be able to understand the terms and information
  • Design records so they are intuitive, and train employees on how to fill them out correctly to ensure clean documentation
  • Manage FSVP requirements with ease by leveraging Alchemy’s recordkeeping and documentation solutions—upload records automatically and retrieve them with the click of a mouse
