Oct. 1, 2012 - PRLog -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) mandates that food facilities manufacturing, processing or packing food, beverages and dietary supplements for consumption in the United States must renew their registration on even-numbered years between October 1 and December 31, beginning in 2012.

The re-registration process will introduce new requirements, which will differ from those in the previous registration system. Although not finalized, it appears there are four major changes:

1.   Each registered facility is required to agree to accept inspection of the facility by FDA inspectors

2.   Each registered facility must renew their registration on even-numbered years between October 1 and December 31, beginning in 2012

3.   New food categories are added to provide a new level of detail that must be considered when renewing registrations

4.   New responsibilities are assigned to the food facility’s U.S. Agent

These new requirements place additional burdens on both the food facility and the U.S. Agent. It is more important than ever to work with a U.S. Agent and registration service that assures compliance with the law and these new requirements. First and foremost, accuracy of the registration information is critical. On-site inspections will double next year. For foreign facilities communications between FDA and the facility will be done through the U.S. Agent. Often these will require an immediate response.  

Only Registration and Licensing Systems (RLS) assure the FDA and our clients that Food Facility Registrations managed by RLS are in full compliance with the law. RLS is the only company that re-confirms the accuracy of registration information every 60 days as is required by law.

Registration and Licensing Systems is the oldest company providing Food Facility Registration services, has the lowest prices for its services, and an established reputation for responsiveness.
