Register to Use ePermits

To access ePermits, you must have a USDA eAuthentication account. eAuthentication is a registration system that enables customers to access USDA Web applications and services via the Internet.

The USDA eAuthentication system supports different levels of authentication. ePermits requires a Level 2 authentication for most permit applications.

Exceptions to the Level 2 requirement are made for the APHIS Form 2005 (Application for Permit for the Research and Evaluation or Transit Shipment of Veterinary Biological Products) and also for some biotechnology epermits and notifications.
