Used in conjunction with the INMETRO Mark of the National Institute of Metrology, Standardization and Industrial Quality in Brazil, the UL-BR Mark indicates that a product complies with the Brazilian standards that are primarily modeled after IEC/ISO standards with some local deviations. Certification is mandatory for specific products including switches, plugs, socket outlets, flexible cords, circuit breakers, wire and cable, magnetic and electronic ballasts, voltage regulators, medical devices, and electrical equipment for hazardous locations. UL do Brasil is accredited to provide this certification. Voluntary certification can be obtained for other products including audio, video and information technology equipment to differentiate product in the competitive Brazilian market.
UL has been operating in Brazil since 1998, with operations in São Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul and Brasília. Our quality and our commitment to life security are attested by our accreditation in the São Paulo unit as a Product Certification Body (OCP) by CGCRE/INMETRO under the number OCP0029 and in the Porto Alegre unit INMETRO's CGCRE Accredited Testing Laboratory under number CRL 0377. We continue to work for a safer world with customers, governments, importers, manufacturers and consumers worldwide.
