Brazil (INMETRO) - Equipments and Electrical Components Approval

Open doors with Brazil´s INMETRO certification

TÜV Rheinland is accredited by the authority 'General Coordination for Accreditation of Inmetro (Cgcre)' as an Certification Body for the local INMETRO-scheme. For more than 10 years, we test and certify regulated products with regards to product safety and energy efficiency (where applicable). Our one-stop shop services help in getting the required INMETRO- and further product approvals for Brazil.

The INMETRO approval procedure consists of 5 simple steps:

1. Product review: Which products you like to market in Brazil ?

2. Document analysis: Verification of relevant regulations and standards applicable to each product

3. Factory inspection: Production assessment and sample drawing

4. Testing: Product assessment per Brazilian standards (mostly harmonized with international CB-standards)

5. Certification: Once all previous steps are successfully completed, the TÜV Rheinland certificate is issued to your local representative and to INMETRO
