Since 1970, FSIS has required businesses affected by the Poultry Products Inspection Act and the Federal Meat Inspection Act to maintain business records and to make such records available to FSIS employees upon request.

Registration information and business records are critical in any FSIS investigation related to public health, food safety or misbranding of meat or poultry products.

This information is particularly vital in tracing the source of pathogens and in preventing the spread of foodborne illnesses.

The Agency has developed a new registration form which asks that registrants provide certain information that was not requested previously, including an e-mail address, phone number, and subsidiaries’ hours of operation.

All businesses, including those that are currently registered, must complete the new form and submit it to FSIS.

The new registration form will be available by December 22, 2003, and can be accessed by clicking here.
