What documentation is needed to register cleaning products?

To register cleaning products, it is necessary to gather and submit a series of specific documents. The main required documents include:

Technical Reports and Laboratory Tests: Reports that prove the product's efficacy and safety, conducted by accredited laboratories.

Detailed Product Formula: A complete description of all chemical substances used in the product's composition, including concentrations and functions.

Product Label: A model of the label to be used on the packaging, containing all the information required by ANVISA, such as the product name, ingredient list, usage instructions, and safety precautions.

These documents are essential to ensure that cleaning products meet the safety and quality standards required by ANVISA, allowing their commercialization in the Brazilian market.

To register household cleaning products, one of the essential documents is the Company Operating Authorization (AFE).

What is the Company Operating Authorization (AFE)?

The Company Operating Authorization (AFE) is a document issued by the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) that authorizes a company to manufacture, distribute, and commercialize cleaning products, among others. This authorization is necessary to ensure that the company operates in compliance with the safety, quality, and public health standards established by ANVISA.

How to obtain the AFE for household cleaning products?

To obtain the AFE, the first step is for the company to register in the ANVISA system and prepare the necessary documentation, which includes: CNPJ, articles of incorporation, sanitary license, among others.

If all requirements are met, ANVISA will issue the Company Operating Authorization, allowing the registration and commercialization of household cleaning products.
