The role played by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply through its Secretariat of Animal and Plant Health is remarkable. It is responsible for the actions of State concerning topics ranging from animal and plant health, to the quality and identification of agricultural inputs, animal and plant products and by-products.

Animal and plant health guarantees, as well as compliance guarantees of these products and foods are part of several international trade steps and may be laid down by the Brazilian government for importation, or demanded by other countries for exportation. Brazil’s Animal and Plant Health Authorities therefore play a vital role in negotiating, checking and complying with such guarantees.
