Thailand

In the last edition of Exporter News, we noted the imminent introduction of a chemical analysis certificate to accompany wines exported to Thailand (see article here).

There are 10 analytes on this certificate, which was due to be introduced in March 2019. The proposal, developed over the past 18 months, has since been deferred for a further 6 months. Furthermore, there may be some changes to the technical parameters.

We are working to confirm the details of these changes with Thai authorities and will provide an update in our next newsletter.

Brazil

Consignments of wine destined for Brazil have always been subject to a chemical certification requirement. The parameters that have been required until now can be found here.

While both the format and content of this template have been changed, Brazil will accept the existing format until November, whereas the content must now cover the following parameters, rather than those previously required:

Analytical parameters

Unit

Alcoholic content at 20ºC

%v/v

Total acidity

meq/L (pH 8.2)

Volatile acidity

meq/L

Citric acid

Total sulphates

Potassium sulphates g/L

Total chlorides

We are working to obtain further clarification of this new Brazilian requirement and will provide more advice as it becomes available. ‘Reduced dry extract’ is understood to mean ‘Sugar-free’ extract.
