Osteopathy in Brazil is not a regulated profession, but is recognised as a profession.
The profession ‘Osteopath’ was included in the Brazilian Classification of Occupation from the Ministry of Labour in March 2012. A list of core competencies, activities and skill levels relating to the osteopathic profession was developed and published in the Classification document. As a result, from 2013 osteopathy has been acknowledged as an 'occupation' in the Brazilian labour market.
