Building Your Food Safety Culture
Foreign Supplier Course Registrations
We teach a two day class on foreign supplier verification.
This class was designed by FSPCA for importers or consignees. This is the standardized curriculum recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration for training individuals to be qualified to oversee the safe importation of food. Importers as of 5/30/17 are required to assess hazards in human and animal food and verify suppliers have mitigated them properly. Students will likely be a mix importers, brokers and retailers. Upon completion participants will receive a certificate from the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance signed by AFDO. You must be present the entire time to receive a certificate.
Foreign supplier verification is required by FDA whenever human or animal food is imported. Importers have to perform a hazard assessment and make sure risks are mitigated.
