The compliance requirements of machines and equipment for professional use destined for Brazil ( NR 12 standards in Brazil and ABNT NBR in Brazil ) can be framed in a scheme similar to the European approach; in the specific case, the application of:

  • federal laws and prescriptive regulations (comparable to community directives and / or national legislation), whose main reference is the Norma Regulamentadora NR-12 issued by the Ministry of Labor and Employment (NR-12 Segurança no Trabalho em Máquinas e Equipamentos), which contains occupational health and safety requirements and minimum safety requirements for machinery and equipment for all phases of use, including information on compliance related to manufacturing, import and marketing;
  • technical standards of type A, B and C, reference for the design and construction according to the required safety parameters, issued by the Brazilian standardization body (ABNT); they often constitute the transposition of the international standards ISO or IEC;
  • specific certifications and procedures dedicated to certain types of products (for example INMETRO certification for household appliances).

Quadra is able to support the manufacturers of machinery destined for the Brazilian market through services such as:

  • research of the rules applicable to the type of product intended for export;
  • verification of compliance with applicable laws and regulations, for example:
    • Norma Regulamentadora NR-10: Segurança em instalações e serviços em eletricidade;
    • Norma Regulamentadora NR-12: Segurança no trabalho em máquinas e equipamentos;
    • Norma Regulamentadora NR-17: Ergonomics;
  • analysis of the machines against the reference technical standards, for example:
    • ABNT NBR 14153: 2013: Segurança de máquinas - Partes de systems of command relacionadas à segurança - Princípios gerais para projeto;
    • ABNT NBR ISO 12100: 2013 : Segurança de máquinas - Princípios gerais de projeto - Apreciação e redução de riscos;
  • Verification of control circuits with safety functions according to ABNT NBR 14153: 2013 and ABNT NBR ISO 13849-1 ;
  • analysis of any need for further certifications;
  • drafting of the necessary documentation.
