On June 13, 2017 a team of JAS USA employees’ attended a seminar entitled “Navigating the U.S. FDA Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) Rule.”  The Foreign Supplier Verification Program is a newly implemented rule by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  It requires importers to perform certain risk-based activities that ensures food imported into the United States has been produced in a manner that meets applicable U.S. safety standards.  Importers are also required to ensure that products are not adulterated or misbranded with respect to allergen labeling.  The seminar provided in-depth knowledge of the rule.  The knowledge obtained will assist our JAS teams with being able to answer questions and guide importers in the process of complying with this rule.  JAS USA is committed to following the development of the market and supports the customers’ needs as necessary!

(L to R) Leah Ellis, JAS Compliance Operations Manager, & Laurie Arnold, VP Compliance, stand in front of the World Trade Bridge on their trip to Laredo, Texas

Last month, Laurie Arnold, VP Compliance, and Leah Ellis, Compliance Operations Manager, went on a trip to Laredo, TX to visit our LRD branch. They spent part of their week in the Laredo office, discussing compliance topics and JAS policies on statements, training, auditing, and duty payments with branch Customs Broker Gustavo Aldrete and the import team.

On July 12th, Laurie and Leah braved the record-breaking high temperatures to visit the World Trade International bridge that spans Laredo, TX and Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas on the Northern Mexican border. Here they developed a better understanding of the border crossing process and got to watch the cargo trucks as they brought their shipments into and out of the country.

Towards the end of their trip, they celebrated Branch Manager Antonio Pastrana’s birthday and enjoyed some cake with the Laredo team.
