 Mandate of the Laboratory:

 Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply,
 Secretariat of plant and animal health and inspection of
 products, by-products and derivatives of plant and animal
 origin. 

 Role in the farm-to-fork chain:

 It is the focus of support for actions related to the
 development, coordination and monitoring of technical
 studies, science and technology, analytical determination,
 actions by trace, control, monitoring and evaluation
 processes relating to the safety and quality of products, by-   products and derivatives of plant and animal origin.  

 National Reference Laboratory:

 Yes, LANAGRO-MG acts to perform in the implementation of
 the following actions:
 
 a) service to the task of supervision
 (fiscal analysis) and monitoring of health programmes for the
 defense in order to ensure the quality of the product for
 Brazilian internal marketing, export and import operations
 
 b) implementation of policies, programmes and projects for
 national products, and by-products derived from animal and
 vegetable defined by MAPA
 
 c) promotion of laboratory support seeking the safety, health and   competitiveness in production of poultry, cattle, pigs, grains,   fruits and others, contributing positively to the Brazilian trade   balance
 
 d) validation, development and availability of analytical methods   of reference for analysis of products, and by products derived   from animal and vegetable origin, and   organization and   implementation of programmes of interlaboratory comparisons   of accredited laboratories MAP
 
 f) production of reference materials used in proficiency tests in   interlaboratory control of the laboratories of the MAPA Network
 
 g) development of sampling schemes h) support for audit   Network of laboratories authorized by CGAL (800 laboratories).
