FDA Adds Resources to Assist Food Facilities with This Year’s Biennial Registration Renewal

Constituent Update

November 28, 2018

Food facilities that are required to register with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration must renew their registration this year between October 1 and December 31. FDA has recently added new resources to assist food facilities in this process.

On October 25, FDA hosted a webinar to walk stakeholders through the renewal process and answer any questions they may have. FDA has published a recording of that webinar on its website to support stakeholders in need of this information. It can be accessed here:

In addition, FDA also recently published a fact sheet to explain what food facilities need to know about this year’s biennial registration renewal period. The fact sheet answers questions such as: Who needs to register? How can food facilities go about renewing their registration? And how can facilities save time during the renewal process?

Additional information on this year’s biennial registration renewal period can be found at the Food Facility Registration User Guide: Biennial Registration Renewal webpage.
