Approval support for automotive component requirements in Brazil
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.
Automotive parts that need to be INMETRO-certified include:
ARLA 32 (AdBlue), axial bars, horns, king Pins, lamps and bulbs, locking rings, motorcycle components, piston pins, piston rings and pistons, shock absorbers, steering rods, tie bars and tie bar Ends, tyres and wheels
