In Brazil, these products must undergo regularization before being sold, as well as cosmetics, medicines, sanitizers and correlates products. The agencies responsible for this regularization are VISA (Local Health Surveillance) and ANVISA - (National Health Surveillance Agency).

To sell lung ventilator in Brazil, there are two options: Establish a regularized company in Brazil and regularize the products, or join the Holder services.

 Below we will explain how each option works:

Establish company in Brazil

To establish a company in Brazil, it is necessary to find a physical location that meets the requirements related to the type of activity that it will develop, in addition to the authorization of the municipality's master plan, after which a regularization order follows:

  • Operating License: This process consists of adapting the company to receive an inspection by VISA. The VISA agent will inspect the place following the guidelines of the RDC - (Collegiate Board Resolution) related to product classification. In the event of situations not complying with the RDC, VISA will request corrections as required. Do you want to know more? > 
  • Operation Permits (AFE): This process, unlike the first, is protocoled in Brasília and is analyzed directly by Anvisa. In this phase there are petitions, collection of fees and compilation of documents, these must be done physically and online. 

Product regularization

Before selling lung ventilator in Brazil, it is necessary to classify them. Anvisa has a risk classification system from 1 to 4, with 1 being the lowest risk and 4 being the maximum risk.

Anvisa classifies pulmonary ventilator as a correlate risk class 3 - High risk. Companies with products with a risk rating from 3 must obtain the Good Manufacturing Practices certificate. Good Manufacturing Practices are rules and standard operating procedures established for each step that the product passes. 

Finally, to sell lung ventilator in Brazil, it is necessary to register. In this final stage, information about the product is presented, such as: Composition material, instruction manual, durability and others. In addition, it is essential to present reports and tests that prove the effectiveness and efficiency of the product. Anvisa generally accepts tests and reports from the country of origin, but it may refuse and require further tests. Do you want to know more? > Product Registration.
