The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) monitor the export of many products from the United States. Whether your product includes food, plants, medicine, animals, soil, agriculture, etc.; you have more than likely worked with one of these departments.
All materials that include anything regulated under the USDA or FDA will often require certificates.
An FDA certificate contains information on the regulatory status of products for the foreign countries seeking assurance that the products exported to them meet specific regulations.
Some examples of FDA certificates are:
- Certificate of Export for Seafood
- Health Certificate for Food/Feed
- Certificate of Pharmaceutical Product
- Certificate to Foreign Government
A USDA certificate demonstrates the product’s compliance with the standards of the destination country.
Some examples of USDA certificates are:
- Dairy Export Certificate
- Eggs and Egg Products
- Poultry Export Verification
- Specialty Crop Export Verification
Once your business has the proper certification documents, you may be required to apply for an apostille.
Apostille USDA/FDA Reports
An apostille is a form of certification that all countries that are members of the Hague Convention of 1961 accept to confirm the authenticity of a document. Non-member countries also require documents to be legalized through the Embassy or Consulate.
To apostille your documents, you will need the original Report or a certified copy. The Certificate will need to be sent to the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., to apply for the apostille. If the destination country is not a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, you will then send the Certificate and the apostille to the Embassy or Consulate for legalization.
