FDA compliance begins with identifying if the products your business manufactures or imports are regulated.

FDA Registration is one of the first steps necessary before placing medical devices including dental lab products, and food including beer, wine and distilled spirits on the market. Managing FDA registration to ensure that the information is current, that changes are made in a timely manner, and that renewals are completed within the required time frame is a challenging task.

Whether your product is food, including beverages such as beer, wine, or distilled spirits, medical devices, or the dental lab products, it is vital to utilize the resources and tools available to you on the FDA’s website. Information can be found specific to each area the FDA regulates. Regulatory compliance solutions are provided through articles and guidance documents. Access is provided to information on the specific regulations affecting your business activities. Go to the FDA page on medical device registration or go to the FDA page on breweries and wineries registration.

Food manufacturers and importers must register with FDA every two years. Medical device manufacturers and importers must register annually. Public databases allow medical device manufacturers as well as consumers access to establishment registration and listing information, research product information such as cleared and approved devices, and complaints and adverse event reporting information.
