Coconut oil regularization at ANVISA

In the case of coconut oil for human use, it must be registered at the National Health Surveillance Agency. First, your company needs to be duly registered at ANVISA, and only then you can request the product registration.


Following the following steps:

1st Operating License (VISA)

The Operating License, issued by the Health Surveillance Agency (VISA), authorizes the operation of your company's activities, after verifying compliance with all the rules established by the RDC corresponding to the activity performed. It is the most judicious phase of the whole process.

Obtaining the AFE indicates that the company operates in accordance with brazilian legislation and is able to operate throughout the national territory.
