    Recently, a customer asked ietcharger: I need a charger to do INMETRO, please quote a price for that?

    ietcharger: Why need to do INMETRO? Brazil is not mandatory for that!

    Customer: That’s necessary. I have done a lot with CE and TUV before, and they all said to do it. Just ask if you can do it.

    ietcharger: … then you should get back CE or TUV to do it, we can’t do this certification!

    INMETRO is Brazil’s national accreditation body, responsible for the formulation of Brazilian national standards. Most Brazilian products are based on IEC and ISO standards. Products that meet 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

    In the past ten years, INMETRO has issued a series of standards to help improve product quality and allow ordinary consumers to make the right decisions when shopping or ordering services. Although INMETRO currently only implements compulsory certification requirements for products that ordinary consumers need to protect, but due to frequent safety incidents, INMETRO is considering adding more controlled product categories in the near future.
