Preparing for the 2020 Biennial Registration Renewal

The FDA Food Facility Biennial Registration is upon us again. Food facilities are required to renew their registration in every even numbered year between October 1st and December 31st.  The owner, operator, or agent in charge of the facility, or a person authorized by one of them, can submit a facility registration.

In preparation for the 2020 Biennial Registration Renewal period, the FDA sent a reminder to the trade community to ensure that your company’s FDA FURLS account is up to date with a valid password

Please visit the FDA Industry Systems (FIS) to access your account.  If you have forgotten your Account ID and/or password, please select ‘Forgot Account ID’ and/or ‘Forgot Password’ to obtain your login information.  If you have not accessed your account in over 90 days, you will be required to create a new password. Please visit the FDA Industry Systems Account Management Guide for more information on managing your account or resetting your password.  If you require further assistance, please call our FURLS Helpdesk at 1.800.216.7331 or 240.247.8804 or email FURLS@fda.gov.  Due to the high call and email volume received during the renewal period, we encourage you to contact us in advance of the renewal period for account management assistance.

The 2020 Biennial Registration Renewal period begins October 1, 2020 and concludes on December 31, 2020.  Please look for more information in the coming weeks.

COVID-19 is a global challenge. Keeping our supply chains moving is important for maintaining the health and wellbeing of citizens and businesses. While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.

Stay safe.
