· Which agency issued the FDA certificate?
There is no certificate for FDA registration. Products registered with the FDA will obtain a registration number. The FDA will return a letter to the applicant (with the signature of the FDA chief executive), but there is no FDA certificate.
Does the FDA need a designated accredited laboratory test?
The FDA is an enforcement agency, not a service agency. If someone says they are FDA-accredited laboratories, then he is at least misleading consumers, because the FDA has neither a service-oriented certification body or laboratory for the public, nor a so-called "designated laboratory". The FDA, as a federal law enforcement agency, may not engage in such a role as a referee and an athlete. The FDA will only recognize the GMP quality of service testing laboratories and issue certificates of conformity, but will not "designate" or recommend a specific one or several to the public.
· Does FDA registration necessarily require a U.S. agent?
Yes, Chinese applicants must appoint an American citizen (company / community) as their agent when registering with the FDA. This agent is responsible for the process services located in the United States and is the medium for contacting the FDA with the applicant.
