For many countries, legalizing documents is a good way to ensure that any legal document provided by the manufacturer is validated with full legal effect in a foreign countries legal system. Documents such as Manufacturing Agreements (MA), Certificate of a Pharmaceutical Product, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Certificate, Business License, Free Sales Certificate, and other supporting documents are typically submitted to the local embassy for Legalization. The legalization process can sometimes take months, but it is the best way to ensure all the information provided has been verified by the country of manufacturing.

Authorization

The process of Authorization is similar to Legalization but is a bit less strict. Documents that are authorized are approved by the manufacturing countries local government but the Embassy of the importing country is not involved. This less strict way to ensure the information provided is legal in the manufacturing country, can be completed in a few weeks rather than several months.
