The SME Leader status is a seal of reputation associated with solidity and economic-financial performance that allows distinguished companies to relate to their surroundings - suppliers, customers, the financial system and national and regional authorities - on a basis of trust that facilitates the development of their business. At the international level, this recognition constitutes a factor of differentiation and a guarantee of the solidity and suitability of companies.
The SME Excellence status is awarded to SME Leaders that present higher performance levels, creating increased visibility conditions for these companies.
The Certificação PME (SMB Certification) is a service that, by electronic means only, certifies the fulfillment of the criteria of micro, small and medium-sized companies by national businesses.
It is aimed at micro, small and medium-sized companies that want to prove that they have the respective position, and to entities of the Public Administration, or registered with it, that are required to demand proof of the PME statutes for the purposes of administrative procedures (attribution of funds or other forms of positive discrimination to these companies).
