This seminar will provide you with an overview of FSMA requirements, FSMA VQIP and FSMA FSVP certification and certification process, in order to get the imported food products onto retail shelves quickly, simplify foreign supplier audit process and to prevent rejection of entry at US ports.



The FSMA Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP) is designed to help importers and their suppliers comply with the requirements of both the Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) and the VQIP. It is issued for the purposes of the FSMA Accredited Third Party Certification Program (TPP) rule - covering the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) official third party certification of foreign suppliers.


VQIP certification confirms that a facility complies with the applicable food safety requirements of the FD&C Act and FDA regulations and enables the swift entry of imported food products into the US.



Foreign suppliers exporting food to the US can demonstrate compliance with the requirements of FSMA with SGS’s voluntary FSMA Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) certification scheme. FSMA FSVP certification also allows suppliers to simplify their auditing obligations with one comprehensive scheme, all fully accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).


Working with a FSMA FSVP certified supplier will simplify the process for US importers, enabling them to reduce the time and effort required to verify supplier’s compliance with the US regulations.


At the end of the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basic framework of FSMA
  • Understand the importance of developing, implementing and maintaining a FSMA compliant food safety plan
  • Get the latest update of the current food safety and security issues
  • Gain knowledge of the best practices in food safety and security management


  • Food entering the US can be released immediately, fast-tracking the two to seven-day release process regularly experienced at US ports

  • Create new opportunities for those looking to expand their export activities to the US
