FDA issues guidance document for food registry portal

The US  Food and Drug Administration  (FDA) has issued a guidance document  for submitting reports of reportable food safety incidents through the electronic portal, Reportable Food Registry.

The document answers questions such as how, when and where to submit reports to FDA, who is required to submit reports, what is required to be submitted and what may be required when providing notifications to other persons in the supply chain.

Though the Reportable Food Registry went into effect September 8, FDA announced it intends to exercise enforcement discretion for 90 days, until December 8, 2009, in circumstances where the agency determines that a responsible party has made a reasonable effort to comply with the requirements of section and has otherwise acted to protect public health.
