Sparks, Nev. - May 26, 2016

Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) announced today that commercial animal feed licensing and reporting is available online. The online system helps producers, manufacturers and distributors of commercial feed obtain a mandatory license through the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA).

In 2015, the Nevada Legislature passed laws requiring commercial feed licensing and quarterly sales reporting, in order to prepare Nevada agriculture producers and manufacturers for the implementation of the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed by President Obama in 2011.

The FSMA rules require enhanced inspections and reporting to ensure traceability and protect the nation’s food supplies. To register for a license and submit reports online and other online services, visit agri.nv.gov.

More information about the FSMA is available on the FDA’s website.

The Nevada Department of Agriculture promotes a business climate that is fair, economically viable and encourages environmental stewardship that serves to protect food, fiber and human health and safety through effective service and education. The NDA includes the five divisions of Administration, Animal Industry, Consumer Equitability, Food and Nutrition and Plant Industry.
