The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold three, one-day public meetings in June to address the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) import safety programs. The meetings, which will be held in California, New Jersey and Michigan, will focus on the foreign supplier verification programs for importers of food for humans and animals, the Voluntary Qualified Importer Program and the accreditation of third-party certification bodies. During these meetings, participants and key FDA subject matter experts will discuss the next phase of FSMA implementation related to the import safety programs, including establishing the operational framework for these programs and plans for guidance documents, training, education and technical assistance.
