Volunteer Qualified Importer Program (VQIP)

FSMA Compliance

The FDA Guidance Document “Good Importer Practices” 2009, advises Importers to, “Control, Monitor and Verify Product Compliance During Entry.” As part of an effective VQIP,  importers should use independent third party samplers and accredited laboratories to monitor imports. The Foreign Trade Service’s nationwide network of independent professional samplers and associated accredited laboratories helps importers to comply with the regulations of the FSMA.
