Border control in the United States of America


In the United States of America, health and hygiene checks are conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the Department of Health and Human Services and by the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). A federally mandated seafood rule is the basis for sanitary procedures for processing and importing fishery products into the country, including Good Hygienic and Manufacturing Practices and HACCP.
