Conformity Assessment System

Brazilian Conformity Assessment System (SBAC) is a subsystem of SINMETRO, where the activities of scientific and legal metrology, conformity assessment, accreditation of organizations and laboratories, and standardization are addressed in an integrated manner. INMETRO is the central executive entity of SINMETRO, the manager of conformity assessment programs, as well as the Brazilian official accreditation entity.

Brazilian Conformity Assessment Committee (CBAC) is responsible for advising CONMETRO to structure a system of conformity assessment that is internationally aligned to the proposition of principles and policies to be adopted under SBAC.

Brazilian Conformity Assessment Program (PBAC), under SINMETRO, has the goal of developing a long-term vision, while strategically managing conformity assessment activities in Brazil. INMETRO, SBAC's managing entity guides the Brazilian effort in formulating the PBAC. The implementation of the PBAC aims to contribute to development, through production and commercialization of goods and services that meet the needs of consumers.
