This article measures the degree of difficulty of compliance to technical measures for firms that export food in Brazil, through the construction of indexes. It has conducted a survey of 117 firms and data collected were analyzed by multivariate analysis. The detailed variables in the article which represent types of technical measures usually required in food export were grouped into two indices: Technical Specification Index (TSI) and Requirements Information Index (RII). The Wilcoxon test revealed that firms have greater difficulty to comply products and processes with technical specifications such as plant and production process requirements, conformity assessment procedures, food safety, product’s characteristics and environmental requirements.
