On November 8, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released an updated Q&A document on food facility registration requirements. Facilities that are required to register must do so online, via mail, or by fax by December 31. Failure to register will result in imports being held at the port of entry until the facilities have been registered. Facilities may also be registered by a third party. The new updated guidance draft consists of 15 sections with new information on food facility registration from the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and will accept comments through February 6, 2017.
