Foreign suppliers exporting food to the US did not have the option to obtain a FSMA certificate until now. The new FSMA VQIP certification is a prerequisite for US importers applying for the Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP). This new certification is also a viable option for foreign suppliers to demonstrate FSMA compliance to their clients.

Target Audience

The webinar is aimed at US food importers as well as foreign (non-US) suppliers of food to the United States, wanting to learn about the criteria and benefits of the new accredited FSMA VQIP certification.
