The Americas – Brazil: Consultation project on regulation of the Beverage Law

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Mapa) published the Ordinance Nº 562 of July 1994 (Beverage Law) which provides for the standardization, classification, registration, control, production and inspection of beverages.

The proposed new regulation of the Beverage Law focuses on identity and quality requirements, which involve the composition and labeling of beverages; technological requirements, which involve the controls of the processes of the establishments to offer products with quality and safety; and administrative procedures, which involve the inspection and registration carried out by Mapa.
