FDA Facility Registration Renewal Update

Hogan Lovells US LLP of Washington, D.C., recently met with the staff overseeing facility registration from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) subsequent to the announcement of an extension on the current renewal period under FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act). Following the meeting, Hogan Lovells prepared a memorandum alerting companies of the potential repercussions faced in the event that their FDA facility registrations are not renewed by the January 31st, 2013 deadline. The memorandum, issued on January 14th, also offers guidance for companies that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for consumption in the United States to ensure that facility registration renewal is completed in a timely manner.
