FDA Apostille

As of March 1, 2014, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) will no longer notarize FDA CDRH export certificates. Certificates to Foreign Government, Certificates of Exportability and Non-Clinical Research Use Only Certificates will still be issued by the FDA, but notary services will no longer be provided.

Companies wishing to apostille FDA documents must now submit them to the U.S. Department of State (it is no longer possible to apostille FDA documents in Maryland). Documents can be hand-delivered and picked up after four business days, or submitted by mail, a process that can take up to four weeks to complete.
