(Two) long-awaited rules aimed at improving the safety of foods imported to the United States were proposed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday.

  1. The Foreign Supplier Verification rule will require importers to verify that foreign suppliers are producing food in a manner consistent with U.S. standards. Under the proposed rule, in general, importers would be required to identify potential hazards associated with each food and verify that appropriate steps have been taken to adequately control those hazards.
  2. The Accredited Third Party Certification proposed rule would establish a system to strengthen the quality and credibility of safety audits and certifications for food exported to the United States.
