    Default FDA Food Safety Modernization Act Registration

    I Posted this Thread here because above all this will effect Commercial Beekeepers more than it will anyone else.

    How has or will this mandetory registration effect you? What changes to your beekeeping operation will you have to make? If your State doesn't have Honey House Registration and Inspection Requirements what do youy expect to be the ramification of registering w/ the FDA? Obviously if one does not register one is subject to "criminal or civil penalties under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as amended by FSMA."

    How many of y'all will be registered or updated before the end of 2012?

    where is honey listed in the act? i searched on it and no hits? I remeber you posting b/4 about getting a notification, is that how you found out about it. I checked my local bee club and the nyhoney produceres and no information that I can see. Penn. has honey house registration, I'll bee seeing a beek from there tomorrow and see if he has heard anything.
    I was registered years ago but they never sent me any correspondence.

    An e-mail from ABF. Honey is a food. That's how it fits, I guess. ABF recommends registering and then applying for an exemption. Being less expensive than the criminal and civil fines.

    Our state already requires that if you are over certain size that you need to have your honey house inspected and registered. They don't inspect every year but have to pay the $70 dollar fee yearly.

    Canada has a voluntary plan in action, and I do not see it being to much longer before it become mandatory also.

    Being that states have to abide by federal law I will wait and see how our ag and markets handle this being they have specific honey statutes.
