PRIOR NOTICE is a notification to the FDA that a product is being imported or offered for import into the United States, in advance of its arrival at a U.S. port or airport.

Advance notice of import shipments allows FDA, with the support of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), to target inspections more effectively.

Avoid the detention of your cargo by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on behalf of the FDA.

FDA REGISTRATION NUMBERS are required to file a Prior Notice. There are few exceptions for importers.

ITB HOLDINGS LLC can help, including in case of an emergency.

Prior Notice data must be electronically submitted and confirmation issued by the FDA before the shipment arrives in the United States.

The minimum time limits
  • Truck, pedestrian or car: 2 hours before arrival
  • Air or rail: 4 hours before arrival
  • Vessel: 8 hours before arrival

However, ITB HOLDINGS LLC does not recommend waiting until the last minute to file a Prior Notice.

So, before you drop your package or cargo to a FedEx, UPS or DHL facility, get your Prior Notice, first.
