Welcome to the Electronic Trade Document Exchange System (eTDE)!

The eTrade Document Exchange (eTDE) System supports the trade of US agricultural commodities domestically and internationally. This system makes trade documents, including official certificates, available via the internet to facilitate foreign and domestic trade of US agricultural products.

USDA provides this information as a service to the supply chain. The certificates available in the repository are provided by a variety of document providers. Some certificates are provided by USDA, some by programs under USDA certification, and some from commercial sources that operate independently of USDA. USDA validates the identity of each document provider and has security controls in place to ensure that certificate data obtained from document providers remains unaltered once it is posted onto the site. Certificates downloaded from eTDE contain statements reminding users that certificates printed from the eTDE system are not considered authentic copies, and that some documents are provided by sources that operate independently of USDA.

In order to access eTDE certificate information you must be registered through the USDA e-Authentication system.

If you are not a registered user of the eAuthentication system please go to http://www.eauth.egov.usda.gov/

International users should apply for Level 1 eAuthentication. They must notify the eTDE System Administrator when they have requested eAuthentication by sending an email to eTDEAdmin@usda.gov The user’s name and organization should be included in the email. The eTDE System Administrator must approve new international users before access to the eTDE system will be available. Domestic (U.S.) users need to apply for a Level 2 eAuthentication account, but do NOT need to send an email to the System Administrator.
