Food Facilities Must Renew U.S. FDA Registrations Between October 1 and December 31, 2018

The U.S. FDA requires food facilities to renew their FDA registrations between October 1 and December 31 each even-numbered year.  Greek facilities must designate a U.S. Agent during their renewal.  FDA will not consider a registration renewal complete until the U.S. Agent accepts the designation.  In 2017, FDA cancelled 48% of Greek food facility registrations for failure to renew during the 2016 renewal period.  Ensure your registration stays valid for 2019. 

Registrar Corp can properly renew your U.S. FDA registration and act as your U.S. Agent:
