The National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (INMETRO) is a Brazilian regulatory agency that evaluates compliance requirements for automotive products manufactured in or exported to Brazil. The INMETRO certification scheme serves to establish a minimum standard of quality and safety for a comprehensive list of components, which is constantly evolving as new regulations are released and current ones are updated.

INMETRO certification ensures that your vehicles and auto parts can be sold on the Brazilian market, which means you:

  • Have legal access to South America’s largest automotive market and the world’s fourth biggest automotive market
  • Avoid lossed sales revenue
  • Avoid customs issues when exporting to Brazil
  • Assure your reputation

  • ARLA 32 (AdBlue)
