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. Having a product certified by an INMETRO-accredited CB provides assurance that the product is in compliance with Brazilian regulations and required safety standards.
