Reminder: Food facilities registered with U.S. FDA must renew before year end
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reminds food facilities that are required to register with it that they must renew their food facility registrations this year. Many Canadian food exporters are in this category.
Under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, the registration requirements apply to domestic and foreign food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States.
Food facilities required to register with FDA must renew their registration with FDA every other year, during the period beginning on October 1 and ending on December 31 of each even-numbered year.
