The Brazilian Registration Hosting Service system is a program specifically designed for foreign enterprises wishing to market their products in Brazil in a practical, cost-effective, and safe fashion.
Under this system, a Brazilian company is given the authority to obtain all the licenses, permissions, registrations and certificates required for foreign businesses to adequately operate and market their products. This process utilizes all of BRH’s regulatory documentation infrastructure, simplifying all the steps in the initial regulatory process for a foreign company.
We hold Operating Licenses and Business Operating Permits (AFE) that allow us to ensure that products, materials and equipment comply with ANVISA regulations. Furthermore, we rely on our multidisciplinary team, which has expertise on the regulatory structure of Brazilian government agencies. This makes the entire bureaucratic process faster and more easily understandable.
An international company can only operate in the Brazilian market if it has a relationship of some kind with an entity in the country. This link may be established through:

Although it is entirely possible to designate a distributor located in Brazil, there are valid reasons not to name a distributor or sales representative for the BRH function. To list a few:
The average time for a company to start legally marketing its products in Brazil is of one and a half year, depending on the product line. This time can be reduced to approximately three to six months when utilizing RAGB’s Brazilian Registration Hosting Service.
The company has control over its registrations, and is free to choose as many importers or distributors are deemed necessary.
The company benefits from being exempt of costs related to the opening and maintenance of a corporate entity, such as the hiring of technical professionals, office rental, wages, telephone lines, among others.
