FOOD FACILITY REGISTRATION

FDA Registration cannot be completed without a DUNS Number (Data Universal Numbering System, abbreviated as DUNS or D-U-N-S). Getting a DUNS Number takes 30 days, and is free. However, for expedited service, payment of a fee to Dun & Bradstreet, Inc is required. Below are specific countries DUNS Number links:

FDA REGISTRATION EXEMPTIONS

■ Establishments excluded from the registration requirement are farms, restaurants and some retail food establishments, nonprofit food establishments, and fishing vessels. However, there are limitations.

■ If the annual monetary value of sales of food products directly to businesses exceeds the annual monetary value of sales of food products to consumers,  warehouse clubs must register.

■ A truck-mounted operation that travels from one vineyard to another and bottles wine is a mobile facility that must be registered, because activities outside the “farm” definition require registration.

■ Companies that sell food directly to consumers via the Internet may be retail food establishments if other criteria are met.
