Released by the Gard P&I Club

2011.7.25-port.jpgThe Gard P&I Club has recently been notified by Members and Clients that the Brazilian National Sanitation Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) appears to enforce local health regulations applicable to ships arriving in Brazilian ports more rigorously.

This has been confirmed by our local correspondent in Rio de Janeiro, particularly as concerns documentary evidence of compliance with RDC 72 Articles 60/61 on the control of air conditioning systems and Articles 79/80 on the control of synanthropic fauna specimens harmful to health.

Lack of compliance and/or documentary evidence acceptable to the
authorities may result in fines and/or delay of the vessel in port.
