The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), requires all food and beverage manufacturers to renew their food facility registration by January 31, 2013. If you are required to renew your food facility under FSMA and do not do so by January 31, 2013, you will need to re-register.
FSMA requires food facilities to register with the U.S. FDA and to renew their registrations during the period of October 1 and December 31 of each even-numbered year. However, in December 2012, FDA issued guidance stating that because there was a delay in FDA’s implementation of FSMA biennial registration renewal for the 2012 cycle, FDA will exercise enforcement discretion with respect to registration renewals submitted to FDA after December 31, 2012 for a period of 31 days, until January 31, 2013.
Companies who are unable to access their FDA registration because they have lost their FDA registration number, their PIN, or their account login information, can contact Registrar Corp to obtain a new FDA registration number. Currently, the FDA is not fulfilling PIN requests for the FSMA registration renewals for the 2012 renewal period.
