FDA PREDICT PROGRAM FDA - PREDICT Program Starts at Southern Ports of Entry (Predictive Risk Risk-based Evaluation for Dynamic Import Compliance) • The Food and Drug Administration is in the mist of rolling out the PREDICT system (Predictive Risk Risk-based Evaluation for Dynamic Import Compliance) all along the southern border between November & December 2011, and fully implemented by the end of 2011 in the entire USA for Human Foods, House wares and Food related goods, Cosmetics, Medical Devices and Drugs it will be phased in during 2012. • PREDICT went live: on 11/1/11 at the Nogales, San Luis ports of entry, 11/08/2011 in Calexico, Otay Mesa on 11/14/2011, El Paso and Laredo by the end of November with the ALL of SWID ports by 12/6/11! • The purpose of this program is to segment risk of commodities regulated by FDA and establish intelligent screening for Import activity.
FDA PREDICT continued The screening will be based on the following categories: • Importer of Record • Exporter and or Shipper • Commodity • Industry A combined score per say will be derived based on data being provided at the time of entry to keep track of the accuracy of the data and constancy of what is filed with FDA and actually recorded with FDA. PREDICT facilitates the processing of entries by measuring the quality of data being provided to the filers (brokers) then to FDA.
FDA PREDICT continued What FDA has encountered with the use of PREDICT is that the time of processing and reviewing entries is far more efficient, effective and expeditious where the number of MAY PROCEEDS have increased. Thereby allowing FDA to focus on the entries that require more effort and time to verify data accuracy and completeness. • FDA personnel are currently being trained on the new entry review system. Due to the nature of the new system, expect some delays as personnel become more acquainted on the new system. • It will become more imperative for Import Filers to input all the necessary data required to avoid any further delays. • This is the link to the detailed information and video from FDA on PREDICT and the rest of the presentations that FDA is utilizing to train the FDA officers and sharing with the importing community. http://www.fda.gov/ForIndustry/ImportProgram/ucm172743.htm#.Tqs8gVX6IQ8.email
FDA PREDICT continued • PREDICT assists FDA in expediting the clearance of lower-risk cargo if accurate and complete data are provided by importers and entry filers. FDA Import Operations would like to stress the importance of providing the correct information in the electronic transmission of entries in order to reduce delays. • As a rule, each entry must stand on its own regardless of the history of similar entries. Entries that do not contain the correct information will be forwarded to manual reviewers. If documents are requested, it is often due to a deficiency in the transmitted information. Predict matches the affirmations of compliance with the product code provided so it is imperative that the correct product codes be used. • When corrections need to be made on electronic entries, PREDICT scores for the importer and brokerage firms will both increase. Higher PREDICT scores can result in entries being held, manually reviewed, and examined. To expedite the entry review process, please ensure that the most valid, up-to-date, and correct information is provided with each line of their entry.
