Domestic and foreign facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States are required to register with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA).
We are making it easy and affordable: only $75.00, after a discount on our very low standard annual fee. This offer is valid until September 25, 2020.
FDA Biennial Registration Renewal for domestic and foreign Food Facilities is required between October 1 and December 31, 2020. Click here for lowest fees.
Most foreign food facilities use this unique opportunity to switch U.S. Agent.
No new FDA Registration or FDA Biennial Registration Renewal can 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.
■ 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.
We do not recommend looking for reasons not to register your company, however.
Finally, keep in mind that FedEx, UPS, DHL or your Freight Forwarder will not accept your package or cargo without an FDA Registration Number and a Prior Notice.
