Effective March 25, 2022, electronic Certificates of Pharmaceutical Product (eCPPs) issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Drug Evaluation will include a unique Quick Response (QR) code. This change will allow for quicker and easier verification of the authenticity of eCPPs. Anyone, including foreign governments, that receives an eCPP for human drug products exported from the U.S. FDA may verify the authenticity of these certificates using one of the options below.
How to verify an eCPP:
To scan a QR code, open a camera application on your mobile phone and hold your phone over the QR code so that it appears on the screen of your phone. If your phone is capable of reading QR codes, a notification will pop up on your camera’s screen. Tap the notification to navigate to the FDA Unified Registration and Listing System Export Certification Validator (FECV) Portal. Enter the unique eCPP number to verify the eCPP and view a copy of the certificate associated with the QR code. If your phone does not have this capability, you will need to use the FECV Portal for verification.
