Hello everbody!

 

Our customer from Mexico, requests for a "certificate of weight  and volume" for the goods (coconut flour) we are going to send to them.
Customer states that it is mandatory to have a this kind of certificate for food items to enable to be import into the Mexico.

 

Does anybody know what is this certificate & who should issue this certificate?

 

Your valuable feedback is always appreciated!

Greetings Nalathu,

 

I don't know your country to give specific info, but if it is something like in mine, this could be issued by your local National/State Food Authority. For example in Greece it's EFET (similar to FDA) or the State Veterinary Agency. An exporter has to fill some documents in one of the two, whoever is closer, stating his credentials, country of export, what and how much etc, an official verifies all statements and issues something like a "certificate" which accompanies the shipment.

 

It could be something similar. A private company/CB could propably issue this too, but I don't really think it would be readily acceptable, unless the importer is also ok with that (or doesn't really care as long as he has something to show!!!).

There is also a slim chance he could mean the weight and volume that is measured from the shipping company upon reception of the goods and could be written on the invoice and want a copy of that ???

 

Regards!
