What are the possible classifications in the issuance of the Sanitary Surveillance inspection report?

The establishment designated as “Satisfactory” meets the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practices during inspection. While the establishment designated as “Unsatisfactory” does not meet the critical standards of good practice in conducting an inspection.The establishment designated as “in demand” is the one where nonconformities considered to be of low critical index were found at the time of the inspection. After its inspection, the corresponding requirements must be met within a maximum period of 120 days from the date of its discovery.

Failure to comply with the requirements within the stipulated period will result in the rejection of the Certification requests by ANVISA.
The status of “awaiting inspection” that appears in the result of the Document Status Consultation means that the Good Practices Certificate application process is awaiting the result of a health inspection carried out by: 

- Local visa, in the case of national inspection;
- ANVISA, in cases of specific products and in the case of international inspection; or
- If good practices are granted for biological products or for non-organic products upon request by ANVISA, the local visa and ANVISA are granted together.

Notification of Nail polish at ANVISA

Nail polishes are classified as grade 1, that is, they do not need registration, but this does not exempt you from notifying them with ANVISA. 

The notification system eliminates the need for technical analysis before product regularization. However, when filing the petition, the processing of these requests will go through a strictly administrative initial process until the issuance of the notification number. Subsequently, the ANVISA will carry out audits with a periodicity determined by the database of notified products, as a way of verifying compliance.Technical information (dossier or technical report) must always be available to health authorities.
