Highway in the dark

INMETRO regulation 301, issued on July 21, 2011, requires auto components for the aftermarket to carry both the coformity seal of SBAC (Brazilian Conformity Evaluation System), that includes INMETRO mark and SGS conformity seal, accredited by CGCRE (the accreditation division of INMETRO), to enter and be sold in Brazil.
