2. Manufacturers and importers of automotive wheels will have 12 months, from the date of this ordinance, to update the layout of the Conformity Identification Seal, and this ordinance does not require a new certification process based on the requirements consolidated in this Regulation.
3. During the initial assessment it is possible to accept ISO/IATF certificate, as long as a valid QMS certificate, issued according to ISO 9001:2015 or ABNT NBR ISO 9001:2015, or IATF 16949:2016, can be submitted, and assessed by the certification body. In this case, the applicant must provide the certification body with all records related to this certification.
