FDA extends flexibility for Unique Facility Identifier Requirement for food facility registration through December 2022


Mar 30, 2021

Domestic and foreign facilities that manufacture, processes, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States are required to register with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In addition, every two years these same facilities must renew their registration before December 31. The latest biennial registration renewal period ended on December 31, 2020; however, the FDA had previously allowed facilities more time to obtain and submit a unique facility identifier (UFI) with their registration submission, a requirement that began during the 2020 biennial registration renewal period. Now the FDA is further extending the time period to obtain and submit a UFI until December 31, 2022.
