Generally, FDA registration renewal timelines are from October 1 to December 31 every year. However, the annual registration requirement may vary based on the product category.
Summary of FDA registration renewal requirements.
Food facility registration renewal timelines
- Food facilities registration is required every even year between the 1st of October and December 31. For example, food facilities must renew their registration in the years 2020, 2022, 2024, and so on. Failure to timely renew your registration may result in the cancelation of the food facility registration. If food facility registration is not renewed by 11:59 PM on December 31, the registration is considered expired and will be removed from your account.
- The FDA has abbreviated the biennial registration renewal process for a facility that has not had any changes to its registration information since the previous registration, registration renewal, or update for the facility.
- However, for the year 2020 food facility registration renewal, a unique facility identifier (UFI) is required.
- The Data Universal Numbering System D-U-N-S (DUNS) number is an acceptable UFI for the FDA. DUNS numbers are assigned and managed by Dun & Bradstreet.
- Please visit the FDA DUNS Portal at https://fdadunslookup.com/in order to obtain or verify your DUNS number.
- A DUNS number can be obtained free of charge for D&B.
