Environmental Regularization Programs
In order to promote the rural properties compliance with the Federal Law on the Protection of Native Vegetation (‘Forest Code’), the Article 59 of the Forest Code determines that all the Brazilian states establish Environmental Regularization Programs, known as PRAs.
PRAs are made up of a set of specific rules, legally established and compatible with the general rules defined by the Federal Government. PRA takes into account the regional, territorial, climatic, historical, cultural, economic and social peculiarities of each state. The state governments are in charge of its implementation.
By selecting a state, you will have access to all legal instruments related to the PRA of such state. The color that appears in each state indicates the current level of PRA’s implementation, as shown in the legend below. By selecting a state, you will have access to all the legal instruments related to the PRA of the chosen state.

- YELLOW: PRA regulated, but still without rural properties compliance.
- RED: PRA not regulated yet.
