Foreign importers ask U.S. exporting companies to provide certification for products subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. FDA issues export certificates that contain information about the regulatory status of a particular product. FDA issues export certifications for drugs, biological products, and devices for humans and animals that meet the applicable requirements of the law and that can be legally marketed in the United States or that can be legally exported but not marketed in the United States. The FDA is not required to issue export certificates for food, feed additives, dietary supplements, or cosmetics. However, the FDA intends to continue to issue export certificates if resources permit.
