New Pacifier Ordinance in Brazil

Stakeholders are reminded that Brazil’s new ordinance
for pacifiers came into force on August 2, 2021.

Issued by the Brazilian Ministry of Economy/National
Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (INMETRO) on July 16, 2021,
Ordinance No. 301 of July 12, 2021, details the consolidated conformity
assessment requirements and conformity identification seal for pacifiers.

Provisions included in
the ordinance include:

  • Establishing:
    • Annex I – consolidated legislation for pacifiers in the form of
      conformity assessment requirements
    • Annex II – specifications for the Conformity Identification Seal
  • Conformity
    assessments must be carried out by a Product Certification Body (Organismo de Certificação
    de Produto, OCP), established in Brazil and accredited by INMETRO
  • Suppliers must choose
    Certification Model 1b (batch test) or 5 for conformity assessment requirements
    – the Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for Model 5 is valid for four years
  • Certified products that
    have been issued must be evaluated against the new ordinance at the next
    evaluation – the requirements related to the validity of the certificate and
    the timing of maintenance assessments (Annex I to the Ordinance) will apply to
    certificates already issued by consideration of their issue date
