FDA to host webinar on food facility registration, UFI requirements
Biennial required registration period begins Oct 1, ends Dec 31
July 25, 2022
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will present a webinar to discuss how to comply with the food facility registration requirement on Thursday, August 11 at 10am PT/1pm ET.
U.S. and foreign human and animal food facilities that are required to register with the FDA must renew their registration between October 1 and December 31, 2022. Registration and access information for the webinar is available here.
This year's registration period marks the end of FDA enforcement discretion on the requirement that registering facilities must obtain and provide a unique facility identifier (UFI). FDA requires the use of Dun & Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering system (DUNS) numbers for this purpose.
Details of facility registration, the process for obtaining a DUNS number, and the UFI requirement will all be covered in the August 11 webinar. Details on compliance with the UFI requirement are also available in an FDA guidance on the subject.
