Thu, Mar 23, 2017, 8:00 AM – Fri, Mar 24, 2017, 4:00 PM CDT
FSPCA FOREIGN SUPPLIER VERIFICATION PROGRAMS (FSVP) COURSE
Description: 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). This regulation is one of a number of regulations and guidance that implement the provisions of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which focuses on safe food practices. This course is designed for:
- 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.
- 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.
This curriculum was designed by regulatory, academic, and industry professionals and developed in consultation with FDA as part of the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance. In contrast to the Preventive Controls (PC) rules, the FSVP rule does not require you to attend a training program following a “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA. Attending this course, however, will help you understand the FSVP requirements and how those requirements can be met in your particular circumstance.
Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) training is open for registration. Hosted by AgroFoodSafety.Com Academy and developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), all training sessions will be taught by FSPCA FSVP lead instructor and upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate from the FSPCA and IFPTI.
To successfully complete the course, a participant must be present for the entire delivery and actively participate in the exercises. Otherwise, do not approve participant completion. Plan for the full two days of training.
