With the aim of developing the technical regulations for the Integrated specific Production (IP) of pig meat, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA) has established the Pig Meat Integrated Production Technical Committee. With the new regulations, the companies and the farmers will have the chance to be entitled to use the internationally recognised "Brazil Certified" seal, with the guarantee of the Metrology, Quality, and Technology National Institute (INMETRO).

The integrated production is an agricultural production system based on the good agricultural practices that guarantees the environmental preservation, and the health and the welfare of the animals. The MAPA, in conjunction with several organisms, is preparing integrated production regulations for milk, honey, and pig meat, among other products.

The joining to the PI is voluntary. The farms and the industry will have to obey the requirements of the Specific Technical Regulation (NTE). This NTE will be prepared by the Pig Meat Integrated Production Technical Committee, appointed by the Agricultural Development and Cooperative Movement Secretary (SDC) of the MAPA, Caio Rocha, through the Ordinance No. 56, of April 19th 2013.

Caio Rocha explained that when applying for the adhesion, the farmers will be audited by companies authorised by the INMETRO, and they will receive the "Brazil Certified" seal, that guarantees that the product is a top quality product.
