AHPA reminds its members that the biennial registration period for food facilities required to register with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—including dietary supplement facilities—begins October 1 and ends December 31, 2022.
All registered facilities must renew their registrations during this period using the online system at this FDA site.
Registering facilities must provide a unique facility identifier (UFI) assigned through the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS). If a facility already has a DUNS number, a new one is not needed. DUNS numbers are assigned by Dun & Bradstreet, and can be obtained for free here. Note that the process of obtaining a DUNS number may take 30 days or longer. Expedited number assignment requires a one-time charge.
Detailed, step-by-step information on the 2022 registration renewal process can be found at the FDA Food Facility Registration User Guide: Biennial Registration Renewal webpage.
