Proposed Foreign Supplier Verification Rule - Comprehensive Review and Explanation
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (CDT)
This webinar on the Foreign Supplier Verification rule, regulating food imports, will explore all 175 pages of the new rule to provide a clear idea of its new standards, criteria, definitions, and limited exemptions.
Why Should You Attend:
The Foreign Supplier Verification rule will place a new burden on importers. Importers of food will be responsible for identifying hazards and conducting various verification activities to ensure the hazards are controlled.
This webinar will discuss standards and record keeping requirements, set by the Foreign Supplier Verification rule, that if not followed could lead to refusal of a shipment or an Import Alert. The rule is incredibly detailed and replaces decades long reliance on ambiguous standards and guidance documents. This training is designed to help importers and foreign suppliers of food and dietary supplements to understand the rule and how to comply to import products once the rule goes into effect.
