Brazil: FAIRS Annual Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BR2021-0053

The Brazilian government is currently reviewing and consolidating the overall set of regulations that establishes technical and administrative procedures to the country’s legal framework. Government bodies such as the National Agency of Sanitary Surveillance (ANVISA) and the Ministry of Agriculture Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA), which have a critical impact on imports of agricultural products, are diligently working to conclude this task, which must be completed by 2022. Although, the goal is to facilitate trade and turn it more transparent, U.S. exporters are highly recommended to work closely with Brazilian importers as requirements are being modified in a fast pace to avoid noncompliance and clearance issues.
