"This guidance document is a restatement of the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) current requirements for registration of food facilities presented in simplified format and language. As guidance, it is not binding on either FDA or the public. FDA notes, however, that the regulation that is the basis for this pamphlet establishes requirements for all covered activities. For this reason, FDA strongly recommends that affected parties consult the regulation at 21 CFR Part 1, Subpart H, in addition to reading this pamphlet. The Food and Drug Administration has prepared this guidance to restate the legal requirements set forth in 21 CFR 1.225 through 1.243 concerning registration of food facilities under the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002. This guide is intended to help any entity, regardless of size, to comply with the regulations that require domestic and foreign facilities that manufacture/process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States to register with FDA."
