When utilizing a Certificate of Free Sale overseas, know that an apostille will allow for the document to be certified and legalized for international use, and will have specific requirements depending on the country. If you need an apostille on your Certificate of Free Sale issued from the FDA, one can be acquired through Atlanta Apostille.
When exporting your documents from the U.S., know that you will most likely be asked to supply an apostilled certificate documentary stamp ensuring all products were regulated under the Federal Food, Drug, & Cosmetic Act (FDC). The Certificate of Free Sale provided will ensure that all materials used are listed and under file within the FDA’s Department of Health and Human Services.
Ensure that all food products meet the specifications of section 801(e) of the FD&C Act [21 U.S.C. 381(e)].
In accordance with the provisions of this section, a food intended for export shall not be deemed to be adulterated or misbranded under the FD&C Act if it:
(a) accords to the specifications of the foreign purchaser
(b) is not in conflict with the laws of the country to which it is intended for export,
(c) is labeled on the outside of the shipping package that it is intended for export, and
(d) is not sold or offered for sale in domestic commerce.
