Maryland-based consulting firm, FDAImports.com, has launched a new website designed to assist companies with understanding U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) permit approval requirements and obtaining a permit for their product. The website, USDAPermits.com, explains the approval process in simple English and allows companies to quickly and easily begin the process of obtaining a USDA permit.
“Many companies find out about the unique USDA permit requirements for the first time when their shipment is held at a port by U.S. Customs Agriculture Inspectors, “said Benjamin England, Founder and CEO of FDAImports.com. “This can be devastating, as some permits are nearly impossible to retroactively issue.”
Based on the firm’s work with hundreds of U.S. and international companies over the years it became clear that simple explanations and clean, straightforward website content was invaluable to foreign manufacturers. USDAPermits.com is easy to understand and is written in clear, simple English, addressing many of the most common questions importers have about USDA permits such as:
- Who needs a USDA permit?
- How long does the permit process take?
- Can permits be revoked?
- How long do permits last?
- What if product formulations or manufacturing methods change?
- What if health certificates cannot be obtained?
“Since the lack of a proper USDA permit can delay or completely halt your shipment, it’s important to have things figured out before you ship,” said England. “We’re interested in keeping the entire process as simple as possible and I think the website reflects that.”
The website is http://www.usdapermits.com
