Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

  • Understand when and how FDA will apply fees.
  • What legal violations will trigger the imposition of fees?
  • When will fees begin to be imposed?
  • What will be the amount of the fees?

Historically, FDA has not had authority to collect fees from the food industry for any reason (except in the case of a court-ordered seizure of product which violates the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. FSMA does not authorize fees for food additive petitions or other applications for FDA approval for food additives.

The authorization is to offset FDA costs of facility re-inspections after violations; costs to FDA of a recall if the responsible company refuses an FDA recall order; and the costs of re-inspection of food offered for import which appears to violate the Act.
