FDA will hold a webinar on September 20, 2018 from 1:00-1:45 pm Eastern to provide food importers with information regarding the new Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP). VQIP is a voluntary, fee-based program that allows participating importers to import their food products to the United States with greater speed and predictability by avoiding unexpected delays at the point of entry.
If you are interested in learning more about VQIP, registration for the webinar is now open. When registering you will be given the opportunity to submit questions to be addressed by the panel of VQIP speakers.
If you are unable to join the Webinar, but would like more information on the program, please visit
FDA’s VQIP website
If you have questions about VQIP or the Webinar, please contact the VQIP Importer’s Help Desk at FSMAVQIP@fda.hhs.gov or 1-301-796-8745.
