Do you need an apostille for a Certificate to Foreign Government (CFG)?
The “Certificate to Foreign Government” is for the export of human drugs and biologic, animal drugs, and devices that can be legally marketed in the United States.
At National Apostille, Inc., we take the guesswork out of getting an apostille on your CFG issued from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our trained and knowledgeable staff are available Monday – Saturday from 8am to 7pm to answer your questions and provide you easy to follow step by step instructions.
If you are planning to export products to another country, the government receiving the products will request a Certificate to Foreign Government which assures that the product are in compliance with U.S. laws or meets specific U.S. regulations. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the government agency which issues this type of certification.
In many cases, foreign governments are seeking official assurance that products exported to their countries can be marketed in the United States or meet specific U.S. regulations, for example current Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations. Review of an FDA Export Certificate may be a required part of the process to register or import a product into another country.
Our office in Washington, D.C. specializes in authenticating FDA documents through the U.S. Department of State. Our current processing time is four business days. We also provide UPS/FedEx overnight return shipping within the USA at no additional cost. There are currently over 115 countries who are members of the Hague Apostille Convention. We routinely provide U.S. Department of State certification and Embassy/Consulate legalization for countries who are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention.

Obtaining an apostille can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
