A prospective customer asked me to send them a "Letter of Compliance with the Bioterrorism Act of 2001", can anyone give me any insight of how I get this letter? We are registered with the FDA, but when I go on the FDA website and log in, I don't see anything regarding Bioterrorism. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :)
It is a letter that you/your company need to create on your letter head to show your customer that you are registered with FDA. The registration is a part of of the Bioterrorism Act.
I cannot share a letter here, however, a simple web search for some "bioterrorism act of 2001 food facility registration letter sample" will generate few letters for you to assist you preparing a letter.
Following is the link from FDA on this topic:
The Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (the Bioterrorism Act) directs the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as the food regulatory agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, to take steps to protect the public from a threatened or actual terrorist attack on the U.S. food supply and other food-related emergencies.
To carry out certain provisions of the Bioterrorism Act, FDA established regulations requiring that:
- Food facilities register with FDA, and
- FDA be given advance notice on shipments of imported food.
These regulations became effective on December 12, 2003.
