INMETRO, the Brazilian accreditation body, is responsible for the accreditation of each product Certification Body (CB). In addition, INMETRO defines the products and the respective requirements within this certification scheme. Products manufactured in or exported to Brazil need a CB-issued certificate, stating that the product or family meets the Brazilian requirements. Additional market access requirements could be required depending on the specific products. For more information, please contact us directly.
Having a product certified by an INMETRO-accredited CB provides assurance that the product is in compliance with Brazilian regulations and required safety standards. If you are planning to introduce products to the Brazilian market, you may wish to consult with TÜV SÜD to find out if your products fall under the mandatory requirement for certification.
The regional office requires that you fill a set of documents and forms with information regarding your company, manufacturer and product. You need to nominate a Legal Representative, which is a Brazilian-based company that will represent the product in Brazil. The certification service will only start after the approval of the Legal Representative.
