Two systems of certification are available in INMETRO Ordinance 563/2016, Certification Model 5 (Initial assessment consisting of tests on samples taken from the manufacturer, including auditing the Quality Management System - QMS, followed by a periodic maintenance assessment by collecting sample of the product in the Market, for the activities of conformity assessment and QMS audit) and the Certification Model 7, now called 1b (Batch test) where an important change was introduced: the selection and the seal of the samples must take place in the national territory (Brazil).  Counterproof and witness samples do not apply in this case. This means that samples collection at the origin can no longer be performed for batch certification.
