FSVP requires importers to verify that the food they are importing into the United States has been produced in a manner that meets applicable U.S. food safety standards. Importers are therefore required to develop, implement, and maintain a Foreign Supplier Verification Program which includes verification activities and records of those activities for each imported food from each foreign supplier, to be reviewed by FDA investigators.

The list of records required is intended to help importers determine which records they need to develop and maintain—not every record will be applicable to each importer. It is organized based on the sections of the FSVP regulation for greatest ease of use.
