The FDA, or Food and Drug Administration, is the official federal agency for the United States. It overlooks the safety and effectiveness of many consumer products. The list includes food, supplements, cosmetics, medical devices, and pharmaceutical drugs.
As a result, getting your product FDA approved provides it with unparalleled credibility. It’s basically an official government seal of approval. However, getting this approval for various products can be very difficult. A good way to align the FDA with your product is to note that your product is FDA registered.
It’s important to understand that the FDA registered label is not the same as FDA approved. You cannot use the FDA logo as you can with FDA approved products. A product being FDA registered means that the FDA aware of the product as it has been submitted to the FDA database.
So why can it be helpful to convey to customers that your product is FDA registered? The simple reason is accountability. It shows that you have provided the FDA with essential information about your company and product.
Using the official FDA website, it is possible for consumers to search the registration database for your company. Companies that are selling low-quality or even potentially harmful products will not want to register their products in the FDA database.
They want to put themselves in the position of avoiding lawsuits and other regulatory issues if it’s found that their product had negatively impacted consumers somehow. That’s why it’s helpful to provide customers with as much transparency as possible by communicating that a product is FDA registered.
