Is Your Import Regulated by the FDA?

Customs Brokerage Q&A of the month FDA

Customs Question of the Month
with Licensed Customs Broker, Jessica Parks

Q: How do I know if the Food and Drug Administration regulates my import?

A: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates more commodities than its name would imply. These commodities are, but not limited to, medical devices, some electronics, LED lights, cosmetics, and tobacco products. Each commodity that the FDA regulates requires information to be transmitted along with the US Customs entry for the FDA Compliance Team to review. Certain commodities may require registration with the FDA or specific FDA Affirmations of Compliance Codes to be obtained by the importer.
