NR-12 - International compliance

The safest route to NR-12 compliant machines. Worldwide!

NR-12 - International conformity assessment

Any manufacturer wishing to sell machinery from all over the world to Brazil must do so in accordance with the Brazilian regulatory standard NR-12.

In turn, NR-12 obliges operators of machinery in Brazil to put in place protective measures for their employees.

NR-12 introduces technical references, basic principles and protective measures to ensure the health and physical integrity of workers. It also establishes minimum requirements for the prevention of accidents across the entire lifecycle of a machine.

NR-12 applies to new and used machinery and also includes measures for converting existing machinery.

Benefit from our structured procedure for the conformity assessment of your machine with regard to NR-12. It's applicable worldwide! As a complete supplier we can provide support from risk assessment to validation and technical documentation at the machine manufacturer's, right through to final acceptance at the operator's on site in Brazil. The result: an NR-12 compliant machine, including documentation for the local authorities.


With these services we can support you en route to NR-12 compliant machines:
