Regulation of Products with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA)

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply is responsible for the regulation of products of animal, vegetal and mineral origin in Brazil.

The MAPA is responsible for important sectors in the national GDP, such as the Agribusiness, which in 2017 was responsible for 21.58% of Brazil's Gross Domestic Product (GDP), according to a survey by ESALQ-USP.

Another sector regulated by MAPA is beer. Only in the last three years have registered registered breweries in Brazil 91%. There were more than 8,500 beers registered by MAPA in 2017 alone.

The national wine sector sold 156.9 million liters of wine and grape juice in the first half of 2017. Considering the national and imported market, there was a 12.60% increase in sales in 2017, according to ABRAVIN - Brazilian Wine Institute.

And these are just a few examples of the importance of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply.

But now let's understand how the Product Regulation happens with MAPA.

 

Division of segmentations for Product Registration with MAPA

There is a classification of categories in the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) that indicates how each product should be segmented and how will be its specific registration process, always respecting the current legislation of that class.

Some of the classes are:

  • Plant origin;
  • Drinks;
  • Vinegar;
  • Alcoholic beverages;
  • Fertilizers;
  • Pharmacological product;
  • Supplementary additive;
  • Livestock facilities;
  • Product intended for animal feed.

And these are just a few examples. Are you still in doubt as to whether your product should be regulated by MAPA? Contact Stone Okamont and get the best advice without wasting time and money.

 

Time taken to regulate a product with MAPA

Measuring the time to register a product with the MAP depends a lot on several factors. Each class is different, having its own legislation to be followed, a specific technical process and also the part of tests, reports and studies for each one.

There are other variants that make the process intangible in the measure of time, such as the verification by the public agency, appreciation of the process by the responsible technician of analysis and the unit of the MAPA that is involved the verification. However, the experience of Stone Okamont suggests an average time of 90 to 180 days.

 

Changes in legislation

As a living system and accompanying the technological advances and professional growth and specializations of Brazil, the norms created by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply and the legislations for each class and category are modified and improved.

These changes can happen once a year or up to three times in the same year. And these changes end up being a challenge for anyone who wants to carry out a product registration process with MAPA alone.

Since the entire process, from the Company License to the Regulation of Product, must be in accordance with current legislation.
