Common Pitfalls Throughout the Asset Lifecycle

The Ultimate Guide to Brazilian Regulatory Compliance (BRC) - Part 2

When working towards Brazilian Regulatory Compliance (BRC), there are common mistakes that companies often make along the way. From failing to keep up with changing regulations to inadequate documentation and resources, success requires the early involvement of specialists that can guide designers through the long and winding road of successful compliance.

In Part 1 of our webinar series, we discussed the process for BRC, including key compliance milestones for design and construction. Join us for Part 2 as we present examples of critical issues that are relatively easy to capture at early stages but could result in significant impacts, such as cost and delay, if detected at later stages of design and construction or during startup and operations.

With over 40 years of experience in Brazil, ABS Group's analysis of the regulatory framework and scope of requirements are of high value to companies considering investment, and equally those with current investments, in Brazil.
