Continuous Improvement in the Food Industry- FDA Adds QR Code to Certain Export Certificates for Food.
Today USFDA announced addition of QR Code to certain export certificates for food products. This unique QR code will allow easier verification of the authenticity of the export certificates.
Beginning June 29, 2020, the "Certificate to a Foreign Government" and "Certificate of Exportability" for human food products will include a unique QR code to allow easier verification of the authenticity of these certificates.
This added security measure means that anyone who receives a certificate from a U.S. exporter can scan the QR code and see a copy of the certificate as issued by the FDA. The use of QR codes will expedite verification of FDA-issued export certificates compared to the current system.
