A certification or legalization is generally necessary for documents which leave the United States.  Common types of documents which require certification for acceptance into a foreign country include documents for an international adoption, diplomas from an American college or university and various types of records and contracts integral to a company which does business in a foreign country.  This certification is obtained from the Secretary of State's office.  Please see link above.
