Do You Have a Valid U.S. Agent listed on Your FDA Food Facility Registration?
Since the enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in 2011, there has been an exodus of companies wanting to be listed as a foreign food facility’s U.S. Agent in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Facility Registration Module (FFRM). If a company notifies FDA that they no longer want to be listed as an U.S. Agent, the FDA typically notifies the registered foreign firm that they must designate a new U.S. Agent. If the foreign food facility does not replace the U.S. Agent with a new U.S. Agent within a designated time frame, then FDA may cancel the foreign firm’s registration. Cancellation of a registration could result in detentions by FDA of shipments arriving in U.S. ports or a delay in entry. Companies that have questions about their U.S. Agent data or want to verify that their registrations are up-to-date can contact Registrar Corp.
