U.S. FDA Requires Registration Renewal between October 1 and December 31
01 September 2016
Signed into law in 2011, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) expanded the preexisting U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) registration requirements to include biennial registration renewals. Domestic and foreign food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States must now renew their FDA registration between October 1 and December 31 of each even numbered year.
Failing to register, renew registration, or update required elements of a registration is a prohibited act. The federal government can bring a civil or criminal action in Federal court to prosecute a person who commits a prohibited act.For foreign facilities in particular, any food shipped to the U.S. by a facility with expired registration will be held at its port of entry by FDA or sent to a secure facility by FDA or the Customs and Border Protection Service. FDA will restrict the food from being delivered to the importer, owner, or consignee until the responsible facility is properly registered.
You can renew your registration with FDA by mail, fax, or online, but a number of mistakes are commonly made when facilities attempt the renewal process on their own. Registrar Corp helps food facilities comply with FDA regulations and has successfully registered thousands of food facilities with FDA. As an added benefit of registering through Registrar Corp, you will receive a Certificate of Registration to display at your facility and assure clients of your FDA registration.
