FDA adds resources to assist food facilities with biennial registration renewal

November 29, 2018

Food facilities that are required to register with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must renew their registration this year between October 1 and December 31. The agency has recently added new resources to assist food facilities in this process.

On October 25, the FDA hosted a webinar to walk stakeholders through the renewal process and answer any questions they may have. It has published a recording of that webinar on its website to support stakeholders in need of this information.

In addition, the FDA also recently published a fact sheet (pdf) to explain what food facilities need to know about this year’s biennial registration renewal period. The fact sheet answers questions such as: Who needs to register? How can food facilities go about renewing their registration? And how can facilities save time during the renewal process?

Additional information on this year’s biennial registration renewal period can be found at the Food Facility Registration User Guide: Biennial Registration Renewal webpage.
