Verification Inspections

The FSVP Importer final rule requires that importers perform certain risk-based activities to verify that food imported into the United States has been produced in a manner that meets applicable U.S. safety standards. 

Importers are responsible for actions that include:

  • Determining known or reasonably foreseeable hazards with each food

  • Evaluating the risk posed by a food, based on the hazard analysis, and the foreign supplier’s performance

  • Using that evaluation of the risk posed by an imported food and the supplier’s performance to approve suppliers and determine appropriate supplier verification activities

  • Conducting supplier verification activities

  • Conducting corrective actions
