I work in food distribution center that basically sell all different types of grocery food product except live seafood product.
FSMA Final Rule for Preventive Controls for Human Food | FDA
In FOOD SAFETY PLAN -> Supply chain program
- Another entity in the supply chain, such as a broker or distributor, can conduct supplier verification activities, but the receiving facility must review and assess that entity’s documentation that they verified the supplier’s control of the hazard.
Is this basically saying for distributor, we still need supply chain program for domestic suppliers as well? There is also FSVP talks about foreign suppliers only.
I am trying to find references that saying as distributor, we still need supplier approval program for not only foreign suppliers but also domestic suppliers. Where is the reference about domestic suppliers need to have audit as well?
Also, below said foreign suppliers must have audit.
(i) Onsite audit of the foreign supplier.
(A) An onsite audit of a foreign supplier must be performed by a qualified auditor.
Please let me know if I am citing the correct reference about supplier approval program for domestic and foreign supplier
