Set to open today, FDA’s mandatory registration for food facilities not ready yet
While today marks the start of the three-month window for food facilities to meet mandatory registration requirements with the FDA, the government has announced that the website isn’t ready.
Under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), all domestic and foreign facilities manufacturing, processing, packing or holding food for human or animal consumption in the U.S. are mandated to register with FDA between now and Dec. 31. In the past, registration was voluntary.
