What it means
Our certification process is done by a third and independent entity that evaluates if a product meets the technical standards. This evaluation is based on production process audits, sample collection, and testing. The satisfaction in results of these activities leads to the granting of certification and the right to use the ABNT Conformity Mark in its products. Unlike reports and test results, which serve to demonstrate that a given sample meets a technical standard, our certification serves to ensure that production is controlled and that products are continuously meeting technical standards.
