This 14-hour class, given over 2 days, covers the requirements of the Foreign Supplier Verification Program rule (FSVP) under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Participants will learn how to comply with FSVP requirements during their operations. This curriculum, designed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), is the FDA-recognized “standard curriculum” meeting training requirements for Foreign Supplier Verification Program Qualified Individual (FSVP-QI).
What Participants Will Learn
Interactive exercise sessions provide immediate utilization of lecture materials as participants work through a model Foreign Supplier Verification Program. Group discussions allow for exchange of “best practices” advice on successful implementation and maintenance of FSVP programs.
Attending the entire 14-hours of the course, answering questions, participating in group activities, and passing the exam at the end of the course are all required in order to earn the FDA-recognized FSVP-QI certificate. This class will run 9a – 430p each day.
Who Should Attend
FSVP class is for anyone who works for an FDA-inspected food processing facility that receives materials directly from a foreign country, or who works for a food distributor who receives foods directly from another country, or for a food company outside the U.S. who wants to ship food into the U.S., or for anyone who just wants to understand more about the FDA regulations governing foods coming into the U.S.
Required Pre-Requisite Classes
It is highly recommended that students first attend our “Preventive Controls for Human Food” course prior to taking this FSVP Class, as the FSVP class tells you to “make sure that the foreign supplier is in compliance with all parts of the PCHF Rule”, and the FSVP class assumes that you are already familiar with the PCHF Rule.
