Should I notify, sign-up or register my product?April 29, 2020
Opening a company in Brazil is a process that involves a lot of bureaucracy, that goes through several processes and measures to make sure that everything is regulated and fully in accordance with the standards required by law. To register products is no different.
Not only companies need to comply with the legislation, but when manufacturing a product you will also need to pay attention to its certification and registration and avoid any problem with possible inspections by public agencies.
In addition, today with a market as competitive as ours, where people increasingly seek quality in the product combined with a fair price, registering products, and regulating them has become a truly relevant and even demanding factor. Proof that your product will be more likely to be accepted and successful in the market when it supports the consumer with certificates and approvals.
In Brazil, we have two different types of product regulations within the Brazilian Conformity Assessment System: Voluntary and Compulsory Certifications.
Voluntary Certification, as the name implies, is not mandatory and it is up to the manufacturer to decide whether or not to certify their product, but as we have already said, having a certified product today is much more than just an etiquette, since consumers are becoming more and more demanding and looking for certificates to guarantee more security when buying.
Compulsory Certification are the products listed in regulations that determine that it can only be manufactured or marketed if it is properly certified. An obligation that is necessary, precisely because there are so many products of that kind e.g., products for children, products for health, etc.
The advantages of having your product certified go beyond the consumer, as it is through the certification that the manufacturer can ensure whether the product is consumed or used correctly, and so to be as expected.
To help you to see the differences more clearly, we brought you the list of Voluntary and Compulsory products:
