John S. Connor Inc. would like to take this opportunity to remind all food facilities that 2020 is an FDA biennial registration year.
Every other year, FDA requires food facilities to confirm that the information FDA has on hand for the facility is complete, accurate and up-to-date.
The registration period opens on October 1, 2020, and closes on December 31, 2020.
Unless a waiver is granted for paper submission, all renewals and new registrations are to be filed electronically via the FDA FURL Website.
There is no fee to register or use the FDA FURL Website.
Changes for 2020?
For 2020, the FDA will require all registrants to provide a DUNS number. If you do not have one, one can be obtained via the FDA portal and FDA has published a user guide. Alternatively you can go directly to the Dun & Bradstreet website.
Please check out the FDA Renewal FAQ John S. Connor has put together to assist our importing community.
