Brazilian trade guides from NIST

Doing business with Brazil? Or considering the option?

Brazilian business guides
Guides for Industry on Brazilian Compliance Requirements have been published on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) website.

These Brazilian guides complement the US Guides released by NIST's Standards Services in early 2012 — the US Guides address product compliance requirements for furniturefootwearapparel, and auto parts.

So, if your industry takes you to Rio, count your blessings first (!) then choose from the following regulatory compliance guides:
  1. Brazil Toy Requirements
  2. Brazil Agricultural Machinery Requirements
  3. Brazil Petroleum Products Requirements
On a related note, here's an interesting overview of the auto industry in Brazil, and what's right ahead.

The information is made public out of cooperation between the World Trade Organization Agreement (WTO) on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Inquiry Points in the US and Brazil. Businesses interested in exporting to Brazil will find detailed information on product regulations, standards, and conformity assessment requirements for use. Hardcopy versions are available. Contact the Standards Information Center at NIST.
