FDA Removes over One Thousand Drug Companies from its Database

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently removed 1,379 drug facilities from its drug registration database due to non-renewed registrations.  FDA requires drug facilities to register annually between October 1 and December 31. FDA’s Drug Establishments Current Registration Site offers a frequently updated, downloadable file which lists the facilities currently in the database.  On December 31, 2014, there were 10,383 facilities in FDA’s database. Of those registered drug facilities, 14% had not yet renewed their registrations for fiscal year (FY) 2015.  On January 6, 2015, the number of facilities in the database had been reduced to 9,004.

If a facility is not registered with FDA, any drugs it manufactures will be considered misbranded.  FDA can take civil or criminal action against a facility that distributes misbranded drugs in the United States, as it is a prohibited act.
