FDA Constituent Update: April 3, 2020
FDA has announced that inspections to cover FSMA Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) for Human and Animal Food will be made by requesting an importer’s FSVP records be sent to the Agency electronically (or through other prompt means) instead of an in-person inspection by an Investigator. The Agency is making remote FSVP records inspections during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect both its own staff and that of importers. FDA has determined that most routine onsite inspections are temporarily impractical to conduct at this time.
The temporary shift to remote FSVP inspections will remain in effect until further notice. For more information on FDA’s decision to request FSVP documentation electronically, read the Agency’s Constituent Update here.
