Ensure FSVP Compliance of Food Imports
Updates to FDA requirements for importers of foreign foods and beverages put new pressure on large and small food and beverage businesses to stay compliant. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) made importers responsible for ensuring that the products they brought underwent an initial inspection and received proper verification.
Having a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) certified person in essential roles aids in enforcing company-wide policies. It also helps ensure that any Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) implementation plan meets the standards set in place by the FSMA. L & A Consults provides virtual and online training to help provide PCQI certification to employees.
We give your employees the skills necessary to oversee the following responsibilities:
Evaluate current safety plans to ensure they meet FSVP requirements
Learn to anticipate potential and foreseeable hazards for certain imports
Assess the risk posed by foods based on the results of a hazard analysis
Analyze data when approving and verifying new foreign suppliers
Draw up corrective actions that maintain the integrity of the supply chain
