Some countries require specific certificates in order to be able to sell your products on their territory. For now Joom requires the following quality certificates:
In which cases do you need to provide the certificate?
Products from the following categories require EC and FDA Certificates in order to be sold in the EU and USA.
|Product type||Category ID|
*Contact lens require only CE Certificate and cannot be sold in the USA, despite having the FDA Certificate.
⚠️ PLEASE NOTE:
Products without the EC Certificate cannot be sold in the European Union. Products without the FDA Certificate cannot be sold in the USA.
If you want to sell products of the same product type in both EU and USA, please provide separate EC and FDA Certificates for the same product.

3. Fill out all the necessary fields and don't forget to tick the box to confirm the authenticity of the documents provided;
⚠️ PLEASE NOTE: Please pay attention while choosing the product type in the Products field. The product type you upload the certificate for must be the same as the one stated in the certificate.

What about other certificates?
Joom also requires you to provide German VAT Certificate if you ship your products to Germany. The uploading process is almost the same as for the EC and the FDA Certificates, however, you don't have to link your products as German VAT covers all the product categories.
