The GOB has eliminated most import prohibitions with certain exceptions. In general, importation of any used consumer goods is prohibited. Used capital goods are only allowed when a similar, locally produced item is not available - such as used aviation parts. Remanufactured goods are still considered used goods.  

The country prohibits the imports of fresh poultry meat and poultry products coming from the United States. There is also specific legislation that prohibits the importation of products that the Brazilian regulatory agencies consider harmful to health, sanitation, national security interest and the environment.
