Food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food, food ingredients, dietary supplements or pet food for consumption in the United States should re-register with FDA if the biennial registration was not filed last year by 31 December 2014.
We can assist you in registering your food facility with the United States Food & Drug Administration
Owners, operators, or agents in charge of facilities located within or outside the USA that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for consumption in the United States are required to register the facility with the United States FDA. Facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food are also required to register unless food from that facility undergoes further processing (including packaging) by another non-US facility before the food is exported to the USA.

What Information Is Required?
The U.S. FDA agent acts as a communications link between FDA and the foreign facility. FDA treats representations by the U.S. FDA agent as those of the foreign facility, and will consider information or documents provided to the U.S. FDA agent equivalent to providing the information or documents to the foreign facility. A U.S. FDA agent cannot be in the form of a mailbox, answering machine or service, or other place where an individual acting as the foreign facility's U.S. FDA agent is not physically present.Farms; retail food establishments; restaurants; non-profit establishments that prepare food for, or serve food directly to, consumers; fishing vessels not engaged in processing and facilities regulated exclusively throughout the entire facility by the U.S. Department of Agriculture are exempt from registration.
