What is FCE SID Certification?

The FCE (Food Canning Establishment) and SID (Submission Identifier) are the two basic types of process filing and submissions required under the provision of FDA 21 CFR 108.35I(2).

Why do you need FCE SID Certification?

Commercial Processors who manufacture, process, or pack thermally processed low-acid foods (historically referred to by the FDA as “LACF”) packaged in hermetically sealed containers such as cans, bottles, jars, pouches and other retortable packaging are subject to the registration requirements and process filing requirements and are mandatory requirements for all food products that are exported.
