  • (1888PressRelease) September 18, 2021 - SGS has published an overview of the updated list of complementary documents showing conformity with Brazil’s ordinance for baby bottles and teats.

    On August 24, 2021, Brazil published an updated list of complementary documents for showing conformity to the consolidated assessment requirements for baby bottles and teats.

    This follows the issuing of Ordinance No. 216 of May 5, 2021, (the Ordinance) by the Ministry of Economy and National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (INMETRO). Coming into force in June 2021, this ordinance included, inter alia, several important provisions:

    • Establishing a consolidated legislation for baby bottles and teats in the form of conformity assessment requirements (Annex I) and specifications for the conformity identification seal (Annex II)
    • Requiring conformity assessments to be carried out by a Product Certification Body (OCP) that is established in Brazil and accredited by INMETRO
    • Requiring suppliers to choose Certification Model 1b (batch testing) or 5 for conformity assessment requirements – the Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for Model 5 is valid for three years
    • Requiring certificates that have been issued to be evaluated against ‘the Ordinance’ in the next evaluation

    Ordinance No. 216 required several editorial changes to the list of complementary documents for the conformity assessment requirements. To see an overview of this list, read SGS’s original SafeGuard 126/21.

    Stakeholders should be aware that INMETRO and the Ministry of Economy have also issued a similar editorial amendment to the ordinance for pacifiers – see SGS’s original SafeGuard 108/21.
