FDA Offers Webinar to Help Food Facilities with the 2018 Biennial Registration Renewal Period

Tue, 10/16/2018 - 18:36 -- johnsene

FDA will hold a webinar on October 25, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM Eastern to provide food facility registrants with information regarding the 2018 Biennial Registration Renewal which began October 1, 2018.

Owners, operators, or agents in charge of food facilities are required to submit their registration renewal between October 1 and December 31 of this year. The owner, operator, or agent in charge of the facility may also authorize an individual to submit the renewal on their behalf. Renewals can be submitted electronically through the FDA Industry Systems website; alternatively, renewals can be submitted via mail or fax using FDA Form 3537. Please note that this is the last biennial renewal period that we will be accepting paper submissions, unless a waiver has been granted under 21 CFR 1.245.

This webinar will be an opportunity to see a quick demo of the system and answer any general questions related to registration renewal.

To register, visit the Food Facility Registration - Biennial Registration Renewal Informational Webinar webpage. When registering you will be given the opportunity to submit questions to be addressed by the speaker.
