FDA today announced two new draft rules to further implement the Food Safety Modernization Act, both impacting the import of food.  One rule, relating to Foreign Supplier Verification Programs, requires importers to verify that their suppliers meet the same safety standards as domestic producers.  A second rule relates to the accreditation of third party auditors to issue certifications for foreign food production facilities.  The rules will be published in the Federal Register on July 29, 2013, and comments are due within 120 days of publication.
