1st step: Operating License (granted by the Local or State Health Surveillance)

The Operating License is a document issued by the Health Surveillance Agency (VISA), which authorizes the operation of a company's activities, when it is verified that it complies with legal and regulatory requirements corresponding to the activity to be carried out.


At this stage, the establishment must adapt its structure in accordance with the prerequisites established by legislation for the activity to be carried out, in order to subsequently request the inspection of a VISA (Local Sanitary Surveillance) inspection agent, who will evaluate if these conditions have been met and request the issuance of the Operating License.


The Operating License is necessary and indispensable for the next step, which is the application for the Company Operating Authorization (AFE).


2nd step: Company Operation Authorization (Granted by the National Health Surveillance Agency)

The Company Operating Authorization (AFE) is one of the most important regulatory steps for the success of your company, without this authorization it will not be possible to register the contact lens solution at ANVISA (National Health Surveillance Agency).


This authorization consists of a permission from ANVISA so that the company can carry out activities related to medicines or pharmaceutical ingredients. The document, which will be published in the Official Gazette (DOU), must be requested to start activities such as: manufacturing, distributing, storing, transporting, importing or exporting.


At this stage, a petition process must be initiated, which includes document verification, payment of fees, among others. Each category requires specific documentation and it is very important to pay attention to the base documents, as the lack of any of these can result in instant rejection (or summary rejection).


Obtaining the AFE means that the company operates in accordance with brazilian legislation, that is, the company will be able to operate throughout the national territory.


3rd step: Contact lens solution Registration at ANVISA.
