FDA Establishment Registration
AF Pharma US: Your Partner for US FDA Drug Establishment Registration Services & Renewal Process
Are you involved in the manufacturing, propagation, testing, or packaging of drugs in the United States? If so, it is essential to understand the requirements for FDA registration, also known as Drug Establishment Registration. AF Pharma US is here to provide you with all the information and assistance you need to navigate the registration process seamlessly.
FDA Drug Establishment Registration is mandatory for facilities engaged in the production of finished and bulk drugs, including both prescription and over-the-counter medications, in accordance with 21 CFR 207. Even foreign establishments are required to appoint a US Agent for the purpose of establishment registration. This US Agent acts as the primary point of contact for the FDA to communicate with the foreign facility.
To ensure compliance, all drug manufacturers, compound preparers, and processors must register their establishments within five days of commencing operations. Furthermore, it is crucial to renew the drug establishment registration between October and December each year. Failure to renew the FDA registration may lead to cancellation, resulting in the removal of establishments from the FDA establishment registration database.
Who Needs to Register?
The FDA drug establishment registration process typically takes 4 to 5 working days to complete. However, if you are unfamiliar with the registration process, it may take longer. Here is the essential information required for establishment registration purposes:
Name and complete address of the manufacturing, packaging, processing, or testing facility.
Contact person's name, telephone number, and email address.
DUNS number for the facility.
Business operation information.
US Agent information for foreign establishments.
Please note that drug establishment registration is distinct from FDA approval. Registration is a mandatory requirement for manufacturing, testing, processing, and packaging facilities. FDA approval, on the other hand, is necessary before a drug can be imported into the United States.
Obtaining an FEI Number
After successfully completing the establishment registration process, the FDA will assign an FEI (Facility Establishment Identifier) number to new facilities. You can verify the FDA registration status on the searchable database provided by the FDA. Prior to drug listing, it is crucial to ensure that the facilities mentioned in the listing are registered with the FDA for the current year.
AF Pharma US can assist you in obtaining an FEI number for self-identification purposes in the shortest possible time. It is important to note that an FEI number is not required for shipment clearance. If you are already registered with the FDA but do not have an FEI number, your DUNS number can be used for shipment clearance purposes at the port of entry.
