over-the-counter certificate


Explanation:
I have actually heard in the industry "over the counter" translated and mentioned as "de libre venta", so I'm inclined to favor the "over-the-counter" sales certificate over the other versions.

OTC


Explanation:
or "over-the-counter", is the labeling you apply for at the FDA to obtain the 'certificado de libre venta'.

If your audience is pharmacists, scientists, or doctors, "OTC" is how it's written in documents.
