FDA – October 1, 2018
Dear Valued Customer:
FDA – 2018 Food Facility Biennial Registration Renewal October 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018
Section 415 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) [21 U.S.C. § 350d] requires food facilities that are required to register with FDA to renew such registrations during the period beginning on October 1 and ending on December 31 of each even-numbered year.
Please be advised that “updating” your registration is a different function than “renewing” your registration. During the renewal period, you will not see the “Update” button listed on the FFRM main menu, until the registration is renewed.
If a registration is not renewed by 11:59 PM on December 31, 2018, the registration is considered expired and will be removed from your account. Please inform your overseas food suppliers that are subject to biennial renewal to also not forget to renew their facility registrations early to avoid any problems that can affect your food products supply chain.
To register or find more information about registration, owners and operators of facilities should visit the Registration of Food Facilities page at FDA.gov.
If you have any further questions please contact the FURLS Helpdesk: by phone 1-800-216-7331 or 301-575-0156; or by email at FURLS@fda.gov.
Thank you for your attention and cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact your nearest JJB representative.
