Help For Importers Coming To The United States

Companies outside of the United States that wish to import their food and food-related products into this country must meet the same Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations as every American producer. The United States is known for having some of the most stringent regulatory requirements in the world, and the assistance of a knowledgeable US attorney can be extremely beneficial.

At the law firm of Eric F. Greenberg, P.C., our attorneys represent clients around the world in a variety of issues related to FDA regulatory compliance for foreign importers coming to the United States. We have a complete understanding of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and other federal and local laws, including the rules for Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP). We regularly advise clients on a broad range of these matters.

Helping You Build Your Global Brand

Our lawyers work closely with clients to understand their international business objectives. We will review your product and advise you on the unique FDA requirements that could come into play in the process of gaining approval for importation. We can also advise you on the steps that need to be taken in order to apply for and eventually obtain FDA approval.

If you have already made an application and your product was not approved, we can advise you on the feedback you received and help you understand the steps that need to be taken in order to obtain it. Our team will be there to guide you through the entire process with a constant focus on helping you reach your goals.

Why Would FDA’s Emergency Actions Stick Around After the Emergency is Over?

Why Would FDA’s Emergency Actions Stick Around After the Emergency is Over?

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

While some of the Food and Drug Administration’s actions in response to COVID-19 have been traditional, many others have been simplifications of regulatory requirements, and those simplifications could be made permanent.

Here’s one type of activity that was traditional: The agency has been slapping down phony drug products. The moment the COVID-19 pandemic hit the scene, dietary supplement products claiming to cure or prevent the virus started to be offered for sale, and immediately FDA and the Federal Trade Commission started making a regular habit of issuing stern warnings to the makers of the products.
