Any facility request received after March 14, 2014, will not be on the initial list transmitted to Chinese authorities but will be added in subsequent updates.

    4. Name and address of the storage facility for each product.
    5. Name of any federal, state or local governmental agencies that inspect the facility, along with the government-assigned Facility Establishment Identifier (FEI) number and date of last inspection.
