Brazil Suspends Conformity Assessment requirements for Motorcycle Components

Brazil’s National Institute of Technology, Normalisation and Industrial Quality (INMETRO) has suspended, at least for the time being, the entry into force of the conformity assessment requirements of Directive 123/2014 for aftermarket automotive components for motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, trikes and quads. Under the now suspended timeline for implementation, subject merchandise imported or manufactured domestically would have been required to comply with these requirements by 24 March 2018 and importers and manufacturers would have been barred from selling non-compliant merchandise from 24 September 2018. The deadline for retailers and other parties to refrain from selling non-compliant merchandise remains 24 September 2019.

Separately, INMETRO has modified in various ways the conformity assessment requirements for surgical and non-surgical gloves of natural rubber, synthetic rubber and synthetic rubber blends laid out in Directive 332/2012.
