Brazil: New labeling for animal products

Ordinance No. 449, dated June 15, 2022, of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA in Portuguese), which amends the Annex to MAPA Normative Instruction No. 22, dated November 24, 2005, approving the Technical Regulations for the labeling of packaged animal products, was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation on June 20, 2022.

Establishments that manufacture animal products, registered before the Department of Inspection of Animal Products, have 180 days, as from Ordinance No. 449/2022, to adapt the labeling of their products and update the respective records in the MAPA computerized system. In other words, the deadline for the adequacy of labeling and records is until December 27, 2022.
