Well, RJs naturally have short range, due small fuel tanks. In Brazil, ERJ190/195 making SBRF-SBFN route, over Atlantic Ocean by 296nm. In the past, TRIP Airlines make SBEG-TNCM route with Embraer 190 over 1272nm, but a not "over ocean" route. In mid of 2000, like 2003-2004, VARIG does SBRF-SBFN route with Embraer 145.

In my experience in Regional Airlines, im unknow a ETOPS certification for any Regional Jets, only a ATR72 turboprop have "ETOPS" for flying on other side of world (Pacific).

 Thx for the info, I never knew about Embraers crossing parts of the ocean. Is a CRJ allowed to do the same?

Typically if the operation is outside the normal ops for the aircraft, the local regulator (FAA in the US, Transport Canada in Canada, etc) will issue a one-time operation permit.  These can have certain stipulations placed on them, and they differ from place to place.
