 ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION Some goods may be subject to additional requirements with regard to documentation, such as sanitary certificates, licences, permits and Certificates of Free Sale. The European Commission's Market Access Database provides details, including an explanation of each relevant form, and can be searched by tariff code. The Colombian National Institute for Control of Medical Products and Foods (INVIMA) is the principal body responsible for such certifications, although certain specific requirements are operated by others, such as the Ministry of Environment. A Certificate of Free Sale can be required to show that goods are available for retail sale, that they comply with EU regulations and that they are suitable for use by EU consumers.
