On May 2017, the FDA mandated their Foreign Supplier Verification Programs or FSVP for importers of international food items for humans and animals. If you’re an importer for these items, we can help guide you through the process of getting approval for your shipments.

We have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with the FDA and we always stay updated with the latest regulations and trends. We have a wide network of connections with transportation companies and warehouse storage units across the US to help you distribute your goods as well.

FSVP Agent
If there is no U.S. owner or consignee of an article of food at the time of U.S. entry, the importer is the U.S. agent or representative of the foreign owner or consignee at the time of entry, as confirmed in a signed statement of consent to serve as the importer under 21 CFR 1.500. KLA may serve as your FSVP Agent or Representative depending on the type of product(s) and associated level of risk.

Our Process

When you work with us, we guarantee efficient and professional solutions for your FSVP and other FDA regulations.

  • When you consult with us about FSVP, we’ll look into your company’s needs and goals. Our team will also be available to answer any of your questions about FSVP and other FDA regulations. During this time, we can also give you your company’s regulatory standing.
  • Then we’ll begin the document request process. We’ll get in touch with each of your suppliers to get the necessary paperwork to prove your FSVP compliance.
  • After all the documents have been received, we’ll start the preliminary review to make sure we have everything we need.
  • From there, we’ll come up with the FSVP plan for your items. This plan will ensure that all the imported food items from your suppliers are meeting all the FDA’s domestic standards.
  • Once this is done, your company will be issued the certificate of FSVP compliance. You are free to disseminate this certificate and use it to prove your compliance when dealing with customers.
  • As FDA regulations change over time, your FSVP plans also need to be updated and maintained. This involves re-planning and re-verifying of each food product and supplier on a regular basis.
