TÜV SÜD offers support in all aspects of INMETRO certification for LED lamps and luminaires for nearly all markets worldwide. In December 2015 TÜV SÜD Brazil issued the first certificate to a global provider of LED lamps in accordance to the INMETRO regulation. The regulation was published by the Ordinance 144 of March 13th, 2015 and establishes the compulsory certification for commercialization of this product in Brazil starting in December 2015.
That certification shows the importance of international cooperation and targeted project management to help stakeholders to reach market access quickly and cost-effectively. Thanks to the smooth cooperation among the different TÜV SÜD organisations which were handling worldwide project management, testing and evaluation, the certification body of TÜV SÜD do Brasil was pleased to award this certification – only few days after regulation enters into force.
At present, TÜV SÜD offers support in all aspects of INMETRO certification for a wide range of products. In addition to factory inspection and technical testing of products, the experts can provide assessment of the manufacturer's required legal representative on-site in Brazil. Market entry may involve further requirements which vary according to the product group involved. TÜV SÜD's product professionals also provide expert advice on these requirements. TÜV SÜD do Brasil has been approved by Brazil's main national accreditation body, INMETRO (National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology), as a certification body for household appliances and other electrical equipment, automotive components and wheels, Electrical Equipment under Health Surveillance Scheme and Toys.
