What is INMETRO certification?
INMETRO is a Brazilian national body responsible for accrediting each product Certification Body in the country (CB). Having a product certified by an INMETRO accredited CB provides assurance that the product complies with Brazilian regulations and INMETRO certification requirements.
Do I really need to have INMETRO certification?
If you are planning to introduce consumer and industrial products to the Brazilian market that require certification, it is essential that they are tested and approved by an accredited provider in line with the INMETRO Certification requirements. Failure to do so could lead to products being banned, or you could be fined.
What Types of Products need INMETRO certification?
- Electronic devices
- Medical devices
- Household appliances
- Automotive components
How do I Get INMETRO Certification?
The testing and issuing of the corresponding certificate can be done by INMETRO itself or by a body recognized by INMETRO.
To apply for certification, you need a Brazilian INMETRO consultation services provider to be your authorized representative during the INMETRO certification process if your company is not based in Brazil. This is where your authorization partner, who helped you with ANVISA registration comes in handy. This local partner should be able to help you select a suitable certification body.
