Online Verification of Export Certificates for Food

Foreign government officials may verify the authenticity of most food export certificates issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) via the CFSAN Export Certification Application and Tracking System (CFSAN eCATS). CFSAN eCATS is one of the FDA Industry Systems available at https://www.access.fda.gov. Foreign government officials must create an FDA Industry System (FIS) account in order to access CFSAN eCATS.
