Certificate Of Free Sale

Summary of Certificate Of Free Sale

A document issued by an agency of government, usually the health authority, certifying that a given product is in compliance with all local regulations and may be offered freely for sale within the country of origin. Normally, such certificates are issued to cover food products which are being exported. The U.S. government does not issue certificates of free sale, per se; however, the Food and Drug Administration does issue a “letter of comment”within which they state U.S. standards for a given product and give observations concerning the compliance, or lack thereof, on the part of the producer with such standards.
