The globalization of the last century has resulted in a myriad of imported goods that Americans want or need.   The USFDA (US Food & Drug Administration) has been around in early form since 1848, modernized in 1906, and given its current name in 1930.  The mandate changes with the signing of every new law.

The FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act), signed into law in early 2011, is the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws in more than 70 years because its goal is to shift the focus from responding to food contamination to preventing it instead. 

Based on the volume of imported products from specific areas, the FDA maintains permanent offices in China, India, Europe, Latin America, and Sub-Saharan Africa. 

The FSMA registration requirements apply to domestic and foreign food facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption.  Food facilities required to register with FDA must renew their registrations with FDA every other year, during the period beginning on October 1 and ending on December 31 of each even-numbered year, regardless of when the initial filing was made. 

The failure to register your facility is a prohibited act.  If a foreign food facility is required to register with FDA, but fails to do so, exported product from that facility into the U.S. is subject to refusal.  It could be seized by customs and destroyed without ever leaving port of entry in USA.  It certainly will not be returned to you.

Seems like a potentially big loss for a small registration filing that last 2 years.

New companies, file now !  then you don’t have to file again until 2016.  Existing facilities even if you registered earlier this year (or last) you must file this renewal in 4th Q 2014.

It's really a must for the companies, especially for the big ones, to file now. The FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) helps people, if of course, people will take this one seroiusly. I beleive at the end of all of these, it's for the welfare of the community, and most importantly, for the people.

In the UK we haven't exactly got a worldwide reputation for outstanding food and delicate cuisine. Deep friend Mars Bars, late night kebab and chips and perhaps a steak and kidney pie and peas is about the limit of our expertise. It's not something to be entirely proud of.

An advance is a procedure where individuals get cash from a loaning organization or in the bank to purchase the things they need or need. Like when they need to purchase a house. Since they can't get that huge measure of cash in only a brief timeframe the best procedure is to apply for a lodging advance or home loan.

Nothing livens up bland food like a couple drops of hot sauce. Every different hot sauce is made from a variety of ingredients, but each usually begins with a chili pepper base.
