Foreign Supplier Verification (Part 1, Subpart L)

The compliance dates for importers subject to the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) rule differ according to a number of considerations, including:

The compliance dates in this section are grouped according to the category of FSVP importer. This list does not include importers that are themselves a manufacturer or processor subject to the supply-chain program provisions in the PC rules. If importers are subject to the supply-chain program requirements in those rules, the compliance date for FSVP is the later of the applicable date in the below list or the date by which the importer is required to comply with the PC supply-chain program provisions. (Please refer to the relevant PC rule sections for these dates).
