FOOD FACILITY REGISTRATION

Before you export any food product to the United States, register your company with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to avoid the detention of your shipment.

The FDA regulates approximately 80 percent of the foods Americans eat, including seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables, milk and dairy products, baby food and infant formula, frozen, canned, packaged and snack foods, juice, soft drinks and much more.

Therefore, manufacturers, exporters and importers are required to register their facilities, and provide adequate assurances that these products meet applicable U.S. food safety standards.

FOOD FACILITY REGISTRATION NUMBER

Food manufacturers, processors, packers, distributors, holders, and importers are required to establish, maintain, and make available to FDA upon request, records which allow the agency to identify food products handled by their facilities.

Be prepared. If it hasn’t happened already, FDA is coming to visit your manufacturing plant or warehouse. FDA will conduct thousands of Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) inspections. Domestic companies are not exempt, either.
