What is a Certificate of Free Sale?
Upon review, the L.A. Area Chamber can issue a Certificate of Free Sale for products legally sold in the United States*. A Certificate of Free Sale states that the company selling the products has submitted evidence to us that the products listed on the certificate are freely sold in the United States. For an example, please see the attached Certificate of Free Sale form.
*Please note that if the FDA or the U.S. Department of Agriculture regulates the product you must obtain the certificate from that agency or your state department of agriculture.

We require the following documents in order to issue a certificate of free sale:
1. For products that are manufactured in the United States you must be able to prove this by submitting a written declaration from the manufacturer (a written declaration from your company** if you are the manufacturer) stating that the products are manufactured in the United States (one time only).
2. For each product you would like listed on the Certificate of Free Sale, your company must submit copies of invoices showing the sale of each product to a U.S. customer. The invoices should be dated within the last 12 months and the product names must be the same as how they will appear on the certificate. Please note that if you have more than one product, we can list them all on one certificate (though we will still need copies of invoices showing the sale of each product to U.S. customers).
Fees are per individual certificate:
