FDA is aware that various firms may be offering their services to assist domestic and/or foreign facilities to register with FDA. Please note that these firms are not affiliated with FDA, nor has FDA contracted with any firms to register domestic and/or foreign facilities. Facilities registration with the FDA was required by December 12, 2004. Any new, or currently unregistered, facility may still register with the FDA prior to sending BTA related merchandise to the United States. You can register a facility electronically through the FDA website.
