IBD (Brazil)

Brazilian legislation for organic products.
Certifies agricultural products, processed products intended for human consumption.
It guarantees compliance with the organic standards in force in the Brazilian Federation and allows the export of organic products to Brazil.


Companies that intend to export their organic products to Brazil must necessarily have the certification of compliance with Brazilian legislation issued by an inspection body authorized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Pecuária and Abastecimento (MAPA). For this reason, ICEA has signed an agreement with IBD, the certification body of the Brazilian organic and bio-dynamic movement, authorized by MAPA and accredited according to ISO 65 (EN 17065).

By virtue of this agreement, ICEA carries out the inspection activity required for obtaining the IBD certification with its controllers. IBD carries out the subsequent evaluation activity up to the issue of the Certificate of compliance with Brazilian legislation and the approval of the labels of the products destined for the Brazilian market.

Compliance with the Brazilian technical standard must be verified by an IBD authorized inspection body at all companies in the production chain, starting with primary agricultural production.

Organic certified suppliers and sub-suppliers pursuant to EC Reg. 834/07 by Italian control bodies that have signed a similar agreement with IBD will have to avail themselves of the inspectors of the respective body. In all other cases, IBD inspections will be carried out by ICEA inspectors.
