CAR registration will allow the government to follow compliance with the agreements signed by the soy producers by making it possible to identify those who are and who are not complying with the law, thus guaranteeing access to the most demanding international commodities markets. The results, according to Minister Teixeira, are good and contradict those who do not believe in such a wide-ranging registration.
CAR is a state obligation, but the Ministry of the Environment created SICAR (National System for Rural Environmental Registration) to integrate existing registrations, as well as to enable new environmental registrations to be made directly by rural proprietors through the Internet, on the site www.car.gov.br. Environmental liabilities registered in CAR will be regularized through signing up for PRA (Environmental Regularization Program).
Filling in CAR started with the small rural proprietors and is supported by INCRA (National Colonization & Agrarian Reform Institute) in the settlements. The current expectation is that the large proprietors will register by the May 2015 deadline.
