Food Safety Consultants
FOOD SAFETY = FSVP Program + 3iVerify (Cloud Based Software System) to manage Foreign & Domestic Food
The Food Safety Modernization Act (“FSMA”) of 2011 was created to provide tools to PREVENT food safety problems BEFORE they occur, rather than trying to identify and REACT to food safety hazards that have already occurred and addresses the safety of humans (and animal foods) from FARM to FORK.
The Foreign Supplier Verification Program, or FSVP, is one part (rule) of FSMA.
FSMA deals with the requirements surrounding food safety of IMPORTED GOODS intended for human consumption in the US.
In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has started the Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP). VQIP is a voluntary fee-based program that provides expedited review and import entry of human and animal foods into the United States for participating importers. Both consumers and importers will benefit from this program.
FSMA and FSVP is the law. Violation can result in stopping your shipments plus other fines. Determine if you are subject to the FSVP laws or exempt Norman Jaspan Associates, Inc. employs Qualified Individuals (QI) who can assist your company with all aspects of this program.
