If you’re shipping to the U.S. you’ll need to include a commercial invoice with your shipping documents. Here are a few things to remember when completing them:
All shipments must contain a commercial invoice. You can download a template for one, here. This needs to be completed in English.
Make sure you include a full and accurate description of your goods on your commercial invoice. Try to avoid generic descriptions.
On your commercial invoice, you should list your goods’ country of origin. This is where your goods were manufactured and not where you’re sending them from.
Either the shipper, customs agent or recipient needs to provide the importer's EIN on the commercial invoice. If you’re using our template, write this within the ‘Additional Information’ box at the bottom - if the EIN number is known. This will help speed up the importation process.
Remember to include your shipment’s HS code on the commercial invoice. You can learn more about HS codes, here. Also try to include the receiver's contact details - this saves a lot of time if we have any questions later on.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the importation of a huge range of goods. Each FDA-regulated product needs to be electronically screened before it enters the U.S.
With the exception of most meat and poultry, the following items need to be approved by the FDA.
For more details, please visit the FDA's import page. You can do that here.
Shipments need to be electronically processed before the import process can begin.
This starts by submitting the details of FDA-regulated products via the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBS) system.
Upon entry, each product’s HS code will determine the next steps required to comply with all importation requirements.
As an authorised U.S. customs broker, we can manage the whole process on your behalf – meaning you don’t need to worry about FDA regulations.
