Beginning on October 1, 2014, food facilities required to be registered with the FDA must renew their food facility registrations. The FDA currently requires registration for all domestic and foreign food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States. This food facility registration must be renewed every two years, and the current registration period lasts until December 31, 2014. FDA has published a number of guidance documents to assist with the food facility registration requirements, including a Q&A document and a Small Business Compliance Guide. More information on registration procedures can be found on FDA’s website.
