Wineries Required to Register with FDA before December 31st

Dear FWWS Member,

As part of the federal "Food Safety Modernization Act" wineries are required to register with the US Food and Drug Administration as "Food Facilities".

Those of you who have been in business since 2002 probably recall that wineries were notified that such registration was required under the federal Bioterrorism Act.  The Food Safety Modernization Act requires that this registration now occur between October 31st and December 31st of even numbered years ( like 2012).

You may register your winery by using the following link.  Online registration is available by clicking the tab under "Guidance, Requirements and Regulatory Information" at the upper left corner of the page.

Your FWWS Board
