The Brazilian legal registration systems
Brazil is a federation comprising 26 States and a Federal District.
Pursuant to the Federal Constitution enacted in 1988, Civil or Commercial laws must be passed by the Federal Government. The basic structure of such laws is therefore dictated by a federal statute.
States may only regulate these activities in a complementary or secondary fashion .
THE CIVIL REGISTRAR
THE REGISTRY OF DEEDS AND DOCUMENTS
THE LAND REGISTRIES
THE NAUTICAL REGISTRY
THE AERONAUTICAL REGISTRY
_ In Brazil, such as the Nautical Registry, there is also the Aeronautical Registry. No flying device can legally fly without the proper authorization.
- All means of transportation of persons, animals or objects on the air must be authorised and thus have a registration number with the aeronautical authorities.
THE TRANSIT REGISTRY
All sorts of vehicles must be registered with the State Department of Transit; any eventual secured transactions involving such vehicles are also subjet to filing before the State Transit Authority.
When an automobile, or truck, or van is sold, the Transit Authority has to file the relevant change of ownership papers.
