Food Canning Establishment (FCE) Verify

The U.S. FDA requires companies that produce certain shelf-stable, hermetically-sealed low-acid canned or acidified foods to obtain a Food Canning Establishment (FCE) registration. In addition, manufacturers must file documentation with U.S. FDA for each process used in the production of foods subject to these requirements. These “Process Filings” are assigned unique “Submission Identifier” (SID) numbers. SIDs must be submitted as “Affirmation of Compliance” (AofC) codes when importing these products into the United States.
