Ensuring food safety is becoming increasingly important with the vast globalization of our food supply. To assure that imported food products are safe for U.S. consumers, the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) developed a rule titled Importers of Food for Human and Animal. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) introduced the new regulation on November 27th, 2015, and the first compliance dates began on May 30th, 2017. Importers must develop and follow the FSVP which provides evidence that the imported food was manufactured following equivalent U.S. food safety standards.
