Certificates of disinfection

You may need to enclose a certificate of disinfection for items containing used wearing apparel (for example, used clothing, footwear, or linen).

The certificate may be issued by either a:

  • Recognized disinfection establishment
  • Private firm (including dry cleaning firms)

You must endorse the wrapper “CERTIFICATE OF DISINFECTION ENCLOSED”.

Any items that arrive at their destination without the required certificate may be returned to sender, at the sender’s expense. Our International destination listing gives information on which countries need these certificates.
