What technical requirements must my product meet in order to enter and compete in the U.S. and Brazilian markets?

Brazilian technical regulations can be identified in the following ways:

  • Through periodic monitoring of the Federal Official Gazette (DOU: Diário Oficial da União). The DOU is one of the means of communication. The National Press is required to make public notification of all subject matters under federal jurisdiction.

    . The D.O.U. is available online

  • Through registration on the Exporter Alert (Alerta Exportador) system. The Exporter Alert system obtains access to the notifications sent by all member countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and sends them via email to those registered in the system, in accordance with their profile. The profile is defined by the user, who selects the products and countries for which the user is interested in receiving such information.

    . To register for this service, please visit and click on “Alerta Exportador”.

  • By following Brazil’s notifications under the WTO Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (WTO SPS Agreement). Brazil has two Enquiry points for the WTO SPS Agreement: one is the Agricultural Protection Secretariat of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (SDA/MAPA), accessible by   email at; and the other is the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) of the Ministry of Health (MS), accessible by email at

    . Access to the notifications made by Brazil can also be obtained through the WTO portal
