U.S. Registration Agent

For foreign companies importing into the United States, a U.S. registration agent is required. A registered agent acts as a registered address of the corporation in the U.S. and provides this registered address for the receipt of service of government filings – and sometimes legal documents - and acts as a liaison for government agencies.


The EPA states, “All applicants for
chemical and pesticide registrations must provide a U.S. address for correspondence.  All correspondence concerning the pesticide product or any subsequent registration actions will be mailed to the address of record in the U.S. for foreign registrants. Generally a registrant not located in the United States will designate an authorized agent who resides in the United States.  When a U.S. agent is designated, the agent’s U.S. address is considered to be the U.S. address of record for the foreign registrant."


The FDA states, “Any foreign establishment engaged in the manufacture, preparation, propagation, compounding or processing of a device imported into the United States must identify a United States agent (U.S. agent) for that establishment.”
