On Nov. 27, 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration published its final rule for implementing the Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP), a significant provision of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The FSVP requires that anyone importing food into the United States perform certain risk-based activities to ensure it meets U.S. safety standards. On Mar. 19, 2018, most imported food shipments became subject to FSVP requirements.
