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.
