The FDA has had to deal with a major juggling act this year as it deals with the pandemic. Changes in facility activities also significantly influenced food processing operations. Due to this, the FDA has permitted some degree of leniency in the packaging of eggs, the labeling of ingredients and the sale directly to customers of foods labeled for use in restaurants. Also, the department reported that it would exercise compliance authority to comply with the 2016 Food Labeling Regulations concerning the January 1 deadline for the smallest food producers. Since registration can be conveniently carried out electronically, compliance shouldn’t be that difficult.
A pair of crucial bits of information are needed for registration, along with essential questions about the name, location, and management of the facility:
- A declaration in which a guarantee is given by the owner, director, or agent in charge that the FDA will be able to audit the facility at the times and in the way required by the FD&C Act.
- A declaration in which the liable owner, user, or representative attests that the information submitted is valid and correct.
These two conditions mean that if the agency is refused entry to the facility or if there is a conclusion that the information provided was wrong, the FDA has the cause and power to revoke the registration of a facility.
