FDA Food Facility Renewal Begins Oct 1

By In USA Trade Alerts On 22nd September 2022

On October 1, 2022, the FDA will open its portal where food facilities must renew their food facility registrations.

The renewal period will run from October 1 until December 31.

We encourage you to renew early to avoid any disruption in your shipments. All food facilities in your supply chains must submit a timely renewal. Failure to do so will cause product to be denied entry into the U.S.

Starting this registration period, every registrant must have a DUNS number associated with the physical location of the food facility. You can apply for a DUNS number here.

The name and contact information on the FDA food facility registration must exactly match the DUNS number contact information. If not, the registration may be cancelled. For example, if the FDA registration identifies “ABC Manufacturing” at “123 Main Street,” while the DUNS number info is listed as “ABC Manufacturing LLC” at 123 Main St.,” the registration will be denied. The two must be an exact match.

We urge you to communicate immediately with food facilities in your supply chain, including the manufacturer or grower, the consolidator, the shipper, and the Ultimate Consignee (“deliver to” party), to inform them of the opening of the 2022 biennial registration renewal period.
