Firms exporting products from Indiana are often asked by importing states, foreign customers or foreign governments to supply a "certificate" for products regulated by BOAH. The certificate is a document prepared by BOAH that contains information about a product that describes and or attests to product safety, production, processing methods or sanitation of processing plant. Before an export certificate can be issued, the exporting party must have a current Permit issued by BOAH and have a current inspection report on file without any outstanding critical orders. If the requirements are not satisfied BOAH will not issue a certificate.
No fee is charged by BOAH for this certificate.
BOAH requires a minimum of 3-5 business days after receiving a request for certificate for processing.
If you need to obtain certificates for products not manufactured in Indiana refer to the USDA certificate of free sale contact list at:
