Compliance to  FSMA has presented challenges for industry, the public, and the FDA since it passed on January 4, 2011. At this time, most companies and industry segments have established their plans to meet FSMA’s requirements, including those for Foreign Supplier Verification (FSV). FSMA’s FSV Program imperatives require companies to assess their foreign supply chain of food production and implement new programs to achieve compliance.
