ABIMCI - Associação Brasileira da Indústria de Madeira Processada Mecanicamente


In October 2003, the Brazilian Association for Mechanically Processed Timber (ABIMCI) signed a subcontracting agreement with BM TRADA Certification Ltd (UK), which enables, in Brazil, the “CE” marking for structural wood based panels. This is a historic agreement because, in practice, results in international recognition of the National Program of Quality Wood (PNQM).

The PNQM certification, in addition to being important in the domestic market, ensures access to “CE” certification for wood based panels.

We clarify that the mechanisms for obtaining the CE marking of conformity depends on the level of demand to be served by the company, which can be either structural – level 2 + or Non structural level 4.
