Prior Notice

What is it
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bioterrorism regulations require that a Prior Notice (PN) for all shipments containing food or food products be filed electronically with the FDA prior to shipment arrival. DHL Express will prepare and submit a PN for all imported food shipments for a service charge. Customers may file directly with the FDA to avoid the PN service charge. Customers who wish to self-process to avoid PN charges must provide a detailed shipment description and the FDA PN confirmation number (10 digits) on the Commercial Invoice, and also on the shipment waybill in the description section. A printed copy of the PN confirmation should also be included with the waybill and invoice. Note: Prior Notice does not include Obtaining Permits & Licenses for FDA Entry Preparation.
