Take the FSPCA Foreign Supplier Verification Programs course – the only course with FDA-recognized curriculum – fully online. FDA is continuing FSVP inspections and is issuing warning letters for non-compliance. This course is the best way to ensure you and your employees know how to comply and for a limited time, the course is being made available fully online.

You’ll get information to help you:


The United States requires food exported to the U.S. to meet U.S. food safety requirements. The Food Safety Modernization Act states importers are responsible to ensure the food they import meets U.S. regulations through a foreign supplier verification program.

AFI President Bob Bauer served on the task force that developed the standardized curriculum recognized by FDA and is an FSVP Lead Instructor. His work on the task force, understanding of the food import industry and experience in conducting approximately 100 sessions of this course since it was ready in 2017 make AFI’s offerings a valuable experience for attendees from all sectors.

FDA-Recognized Curriculum: The FSPCA FSVP course being offered by AFI is a two-day course that takes participants through the FSVP requirements and includes exercises to help them develop their company’s program. Attendees receive a certificate upon completion of the course but must attend the entire program to receive the certificate.

Space is limited.

Registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note special online delivery requirements:

  • Registrations are unique to each individual.
  • Participants must have a camera on their computer/laptop. Instructor must have visual contact with every participant throughout the entire course.
  • Participants will be sent an electronic version of the slides that will be shown throughout the course about 1-2 days prior to the beginning of the session.
  • Participants will also be given information on how to purchase the course manual usually distributed at in-person sessions. (Manual has the same information as the electronic version that will be sent to participants but is in a bound form and might be helpful for taking notes and for reference following the session.) To allow shipping time, those wishing to order a manual should register as soon as possible. Registration confirmation will include information on how to purchase hard copies of the course materials.
  • Registration and payment must be completed online prior to the start of the course.
