FDA Publishes FSVP Importer List
A key element to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)/Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) regulations is the reporting of the contact information for the party responsible for FSVP activities in the United States. The required information is the DUNS number, contact name, phone, and email address.
On cross border transactions, the party declared to act in this capacity should be aware of the obligations, and have previously agreed to act in this capacity. The FDA has now published a list of parties that have been declared as the FSVP importer on transactions. If you are a U.S. domiciled party, please review the list to verify if your company has been obligated in this capacity.
Additional information can be obtained through the filing of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
