The Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) call for reporting the U.S. owner or consignee’s DUNS number for subject imports regulated by the FDA. The FDA has provided temporary allowance for reporting “UNK” in place of a DUNS number. FDA has reached out with advice that the proper DUNS number be “reported as soon as possible to assure that future import shipments will not be held up because it lacks one”. The DUNS number should be either listed on the Invoice or provided to your Trans American Personal Account Manager to add to the database.
