Are you aligned to the changes that could impact exports to the US?

Navigating today's global trade environment is challenging for companies involved in exporting products abroad. Compliance with existing regulations and laws is one of the top challenges exporters face, and when combined with the likelihood of increased regulatory controls, the demands are significant.
This is particularly the case in the global food, pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Public opinion has also shifted to the side of caution – as a widespread anxiety has developed around products manufactured abroad.
This lack of confidence in both products and the suppliers that produce them is reflected through foreign regulatory and border control agencies relying heavily on targeting systems and data integration to monitor global trade networks.
In the United States, lawmakers, regulators, consumers and the media are more focused nowadays on food and drug safety than ever before. Exporters of food and drug products that are targeted at the U.S. market must meet new regulatory compliance rules contained within two relatively new laws that expand the authority of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA).
Exporters are expected and often required to be fully transparent with their company information and compliant with all regulations and laws if they are to maintain the flow of goods abroad. In addition, due to the abundance of competition, exporters need to go beyond maintaining their global markets and expand into new markets. As laws and regulations continue to change and become more stringent, it is imperative for exporter to have its business verified by a trusted third-party organization, and be willingly transparent and accountable to regulatory agencies.
Dun & Bradstreet’s D-U-N-S® Verified Solution can help exporters meet existing and anticipated requirements from global regulators through a focus on transparency and accountability, as well as reach new markets as a member of a global supplier registry. For example, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been utilizing D&B's D-U-N-S® Verified, an onsite verification service, to verify facility registration information that has been previously provided to FDA.

Lifecycle of D-U-N-S® Verified Solution for Exporters

There are many elements that comprise the lifecycle of the D-U-N-S® Verified Solution, starting with identifying all participating sites within a supply chain all the way through the process of updating the status of a supplier. Once a supplier enters the D-U-N-S® Verified Program, a supplier profile is created for each company using D&B’s global database of over 285 million businesses and utilizing additional available data sources.
Onsite visits are performed to verify the supplier’s information, confirm the presence of a facility through exterior and interior photographs of the manufacturing site and to ensure that legitimate and appropriate operations are being conducted at this site.
Once all the information has been verified, a D-U-N-S® Verified Profile is published in report form and listed on D&B’s Global Registry of Suppliers.
Finally, the D-U-N-S® Verified Solution allows for periodic updates, so the information in each company’s D-U-N-S® Verified Report remains up to date on all the changes a business experiences.
