Mapa reduces import bureaucracy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Posted by Marina

From the 1st of October onwards, it will be easier to import agricultural products. The Ministry of Agriculture has changed the rules and the products classified in the Mercosul Common Nomenclatures (NCMs), they will be able to use the License, Permission, Certification and Others (LPCO) model for Importing Products of Agricultural Interest (I00004) in the Single Trade Portal Outside.

The change in import processing, through an Import License (LI) and an LPCO, is an intermediate step to the future implementation of the new import process (NPI) in the Single Portal and will not yet use the Single Import Declaration ( DUIMP).

Continues after the form

The change in the process will allow the end of the registration of users in Vigiagro, application of risk management and reduction of time in the release of operations considered to be of low risk. The information that was previously processed in a redundant way in different federal government systems is now presented in a single environment, also contributing to the work of the Federal Agricultural Auditors, who will act on a single database. Thus, importers have reduced their workload, with a lower risk of errors in filling out forms, which ensures more efficiency and greater speed in releasing cargo.

The use of the new system will also allow better risk management. Imports considered to be of lower risk may be released automatically. Others, of intermediate risk, may be exempted from physical inspections, and the inspection will be carried out based on the documentation. The focus of sanitary inspection can then be concentrated on cargoes that represent a high risk to consumers and Brazilian agriculture.
