FDA hosting three public meetings to focus on FSMA import provisions.

  • With FSMA implementation in full swing, FDA has announced that it will be hosting three one-day public meetings in different regions to focus on the import provisions of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
  • Specifically, the meetings will focus on import safety programs, (i.e. foreign supplier verification programs (FSVPs) for importers of food for humans and animals, accreditation of third-party certification bodies and FDA’s Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP)).
  • The meetings will be held on June 7; 15; and 21 in Costa Mesa, CA; Rutherford, NJ; and Detroit, MI, respectively.  Parties interested in attending are encouraged to register early, and additional details are available at this link.
