On Friday, June 22, FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine issued the following update stating that it has simplified the electronic registration process that feed mills holding an approved medicated feed mill license should use to complete the annual drug establishment registration (Form FDA 2656) of their facilities.
The Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine is announcing a more streamlined process for drug establishment registration (new and annual) of licensed medicated feed mill facilities. By law, licensed medicated feed mill facilities are required to register with the FDA. The improved process for registration uses a new online interface making it easier for users to navigate than the previous procedure. A Dunn & Bradstreet number (DUNS number) is required for the registration process. The DUNS number improves FDA’s ability to identify business entities with greater accuracy and specificity.
A copy of the FDA user guide for feed mills that describes the updated process is attached. In addition, more information about the electronic registration process is at available on FDA’s website here.
