About the Course:

The Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) course at Ventura College is a two-day/sixteen-hour training designed to provide an understanding of the new role that the U.S. Congress has defined for food importers under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 (FSMA). FSMA adds many new requirements to improve the safety of human and animal foods, and FDA has published several regulations to implement the new requirements. The most important regulation for food importers is the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs regulation (FSVP rule) that FDA published on November 27, 2015. This course will focus on explaining the requirements of the FSVP rule, and how you as importers can go about complying with those requirements.

Course curriculum is approved by:  Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance (FSPCA)



Don't wait to register as space is limited to 25 participants.
