Brazil Announces New Electronic Certification Process for Beverages Trade
Brazil recently announced that the existing certification requirements for imports and exports of beverages will soon be fulfilled electronically, resulting in faster approval times and decreased bureaucracy. Electronic certifications for exports were expected to be up-and-running in November while electronic certification for imports will be in place by February 2019. According to the Ministry of Planning, companies will enjoy a 60 percent cost reduction as a result of this change.
