Introduction:

INMETRO certification is Brazil's national accreditation body (Accreditation Body), responsible for the formulation of Brazilian national standards. Most Brazilian product standards are based on IEC and ISO standards. Manufacturers who need to export their products to Brazil should refer to these two standards when designing their products. All products that meet the Brazilian standards and other technical requirements must be marked with the mandatory INMETRO mark and the mark of an accredited third-party certification body before they can enter the Brazilian market.


INMETRO certification process

In the INMETRO certification, the most widely used certification model is the internationally accepted certification model 5, which includes the testing of the product itself and the audit of the factory quality management system. At the same time, this model also requires preliminary and supervisory audits. The specific process is as follows:


1. Initial review

1. Product technical file analysis

2. Define the product family and determine the test product model

3. Initial factory audit

4. Sampling)

5. Laboratory evaluation (if applicable)

6. Witness test (if applicable)

7. Importer review

8. Certification process review

9. Issue a certificate



2. Follow-up supervision and review

According to Brazilian laws, different products have different supervision and audit cycles, generally 6/9/12 months. The process is as follows:

1. Importer review

2. Sampling

3. Factory audit

4. Laboratory evaluation (if applicable)

5. Witness test (if applicable)

6. Importer review

7. Certification process review

8. Renew the certificate


Others:

1. INMETRO certification precautions:


1. In Brazil, plugs must comply with the standards NBR 14136 and NBR NM 60884-1. Since January 1, 2009, NEMA plugs have been officially eliminated;


2. If it is a CB report for circuit breaker products issued by other laboratories, some tests must be added (the scheme is designated by Brazil);

3. For small circuit breakers, the I2t curve diagram under each current must be submitted before certification;

4. There are LCIE test reports and CIG023 reports for electronics, which can be directly transferred to the INMETRO certificate;



2. INMETRO certification application process


1. Communicate in the early stage of the project and initiate an application to Huatongwei after confirmation

2. Sample delivery test

3. Issue a test report

4. Arrange for factory audit

5. Assist in submitting the test report and factory audit report to the certification body

6. A certificate will be issued after the information is reviewed and approved

we provides a full range of electrical safety testing for compliance with INMETRO requirements. Specific testing services include:


High voltage test (dielectric withstand test) - measures the ability of an electrical product to withstand a high voltage applied between a product’s electrical circuit and ground.

Leakage current test - evaluates whether current that flows between an AC source and ground does not exceed a specified limit.

Insulation resistance test - calibrates the quality of the electrical insulation used.

Ground continuity test - ensures that a clear path is available between all exposed metal surfaces and the power system ground.

Ground bond test - confirms that the ground connection from a product to earth ground is sufficient.
