Each NCR Certificate request must be requested by the U.S. manufacturer. Requests received from a foreign firm will not be considered. A U.S. firm must appear on each NCR Certificate.

CDRH (An FDA office) processes requests for certificates or permits and submissions of simple notifications for the exportation of medical devices, including radiation emitting electronic products. The CDRH Export Certification Application and Tracking System (CECATS) is used to process these requests and submissions.

CECATS (an FDA system) is a web-based application system for requesting export documents. This system offers several benefits, including a reduction in certificate processing time, real-time validation of firm specific data, and status updates of the request. Using CECATS, users can make changes to an export application prior to review, upload additional documents such as mailing labels, and clone (auto populate) previously submitted application information for future export requests using the “clone” icon.

To submit a request using CECATS:

Sign into your CECATS account using your account ID and password. CECATS may be accessed after logging into the FDA Unified Registration and Listing Systems (FURLS) using the establishment’s FURLS account ID and password. See Accessing CECATS and Creating a Subaccount for additional instructions on how to access the system or set up a subaccount.

Upon responding Yes to the question "Will the devices be exported from the United States?," you will be directed to the CECATS Home screen.

Afterwards, you can choose the application needed. 

For more legal information about the NCR certificate, please refer to the general guidelines set by FDA.
