DUNS Number required for 2020 FDA Food Facility Registration

The 2020 FDA biennial FDA registration requires that food facilities provide a Unique Facility Identifier (UFI) when registering with FDA or renewing an FDA registration.  The FDA has previously issued guidance stating that the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) numbers are currently the only UFI recognized by FDA.

The FDA DUNS Portal can be found here if your firm needs to obtain a DUNS number.  If you have issues with the portal, a step by step guide has been created by the FDA to assist you in the process.  Dun & Bradstreet estimates a seven (7) to fifteen (15) business day turnaround time on these requests, but wait times may be longer due to volumes.

If your company has not established a DUNS number, please submit for one soon so there are no lapses in FDA registration renewal.  Failure to renew registration will result in the cancellation of your facilities registration.
