Food Facility Registration User Guide: Retrieve Registration PIN

Return to Online Registration Help

If you ever lose or forget your food facility registration PIN (Personal Identification Number) information, the following steps may be taken to help retrieve it. Please note that while you do not need to create your own secret questions, the following is required for each registration to successfully retrieve your PIN:

  • Food Facility Registration Number
  • Facility Name
  • Facility Name Suffix
  • Facility Street Address (Line 1)
  • Name of the Owner/Operator/Agent-in-Charge

Retrieve Registration PIN -- Step 1

After logging in to the Food Facility Registration (FFR) system from the Online Account Administration (OAA) page, choose the "Retrieve Registration PIN" option from the FFR main menu (Figure 1).

PIN Questions & Answers -- Step 3

In order to successfully retrieve your PIN information, all four questions (Figure 3) must be answered exactly as they were recorded in the registration.
You will have five attempts to answer all the questions correctly (the system will identify which answers are incorrect and when you have one attempt remaining). If you are unsuccessful after five attempts, the ability to retrieve your PIN will be locked and you must contact the FURLS Helpdesk for assistance (1-800-216-7331 or 301-575-0156).
