US Agent and Foreign Food Facility Registrations

Dietary supplements, including dietary ingredients, are legally considered foods and subject to the same food facility registration requirements as food products. Like domestic facilities that manufacture, process, package or hold dietary supplements, Foreign Facilities must also register with the FDA in accordance with the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002.

In addition, foreign facilities must have a US Agent located in this country to serve as a communication link with FDA and them and to oversee their facility registrations. EAS provides a US Agent and assistance with origin Facility registration, serving as a conduit for communications between FDA and the foreign facility.
