INOR acts as:
OCP under No. 0008 - Organismo de Certificação de Produto [Product Certification Body] - Third party, private or mixed, non-profit Public body, accredited by the General Coordination for Accreditation of INMETRO (Cgcre), according to the criteria established by this latter, based on principles and policies adopted under the SBAC (sistema brasileiro de avaliação da conformidade [Brazilian system on conformity assessment]).

In order to achieve its purposes, INOR actively participates in technical standardization activities at ABTN [Brazilian Technical Standards Association], technical sub committees, study commissions and working groups.
