State-run lab placed in charge of certifying exports to BrazilKorean exporters to Brazil are no longer required to go through complicated certification processes when entering the Brazilian market.
The Korea Testing Laboratory (KTL) on Monday announced it signed an agreement with the Brazilian national certification body NCC Certificacoes do Brasil. The deal placed the Korean state-run commercial technology testing body in charge of ensuring the quality and safety of Korean goods shipped to Brazil.
The simplified process is expected to help reduce costs and time spent by Korean companies manufacturing products such as televisions.
It is also expected to help prevent any leakage of vital development technology.
KTL is also entitled to inspect Korean products manufactured in other Asian countries, including China, that are shipped to Brazil.
