FDA to Issue Electronic Export Certificates for Food Products

March 2017

export updateEffective February 20, 2017, certificates of free sale for food products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will be issued online as a downloadable PDF form. The change from paper to PDF certificates will make the process of issuing certificates of free sale (COFS) more efficient for both exporters and the agencies.
