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.
