This FSVP regulation is really effective in verifying the safety of your supply chain. FSVP can be used to make sure your company does not receive any contaminated shipments imported through customs (also known as entry number 10). FSVP will also help prevent fraudulent products being imported into the US market. FSVP is typically handled by a Customs Brokerage Company, but if you are importing FSVP-regulated goods then it’s important to understand what FSVP means for you and how it works before contacting a brokerage company.
What is FSVP?
FSVP is a regulation for all FDA regulated importers. FSVP requires importing companies to collect and review documentation from their suppliers to ensure that their products are safe for distribution in the US market. FSVP applies to all FDA regulated products imported into the US, including drugs, food, medical devices, cosmetics plus dietary supplements. FSVP also applies when you import an ingredient made in another country – even if your company makes it here in the United States. FSVP does not apply to domestically produced dietary ingredients or nutritional supplements (except for finished products containing botanical dietary ingredients). FSVP began January 2009 and has been mandatory since October 2009 for all new imports of dietary supplements. New FSVP requirements started on June 1st 2010 for certain human drug products
