FDA legislation imposes financial liability upon a U.S. agent for fees charged by the government agency to re-inspect foreign facilities that manufacture or process goods to be imported into the United States. Re-inspection is ordered when the initial inspection results in deficiencies, which compromises the safety of the imported products. As a result, customs brokers and freight forwarders acting as designated U.S. agents are now exposed to financial loss should they not recover re-inspection fees from their client/foreign facility.
FDA Re-inspection Fee Coverage is available to provide you with coverage in the event the foreign facility fails to pay all re-inspection fees required by the FDA, and you as the U.S. agent are liable for such fees. Roanoke can provide you with this coverage as part of your liabilities coverage program.
