ExporTT focuses on FDA compliance
ExporTT Ltd, an agency of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Investment, will be hosting four seminars on compliance with US Food and Drug Administration Regulations from September 16 to 19. Each seminar will focus on enhancing the ability of local exporters to understand what is required to fully comply with the FDA regulations governing their sector since compliance with these new FDA regulations is necessary for entrance into the US market.
Under the United States Food Safety Modernisation Act, there is the Foreign Supplier Verification Programme and the Accreditation of Third-Party Auditors. Both regulations involve shifting the focus from detection of breaches of food safety at the US border to prevention. The Foreign Supplier Verification Programme puts the onus on the US importer to verify that the manufacturer or producer in the foreign country is following the required food safety standards and processes.
The Accreditation of Third-Party Auditors regulation allows for the US FDA to recognise accreditation bodies to accredit third-party auditors, which can then be used for certifying foreign food facilities and for food. For registration, please contact exportTT at [email protected].
