Pró-Ética, launched in 2010, aims to encourage companies to adopt policies and actions that reduce the risks of fraud and corruption; and to increase confidence in relations between the public and private sectors. It is a commitment to ethics, voluntarily assumed by corporations.

Article: The precariousness of the rule of law
Stability and clarity are minimum requirements for law enforcement. This is not what you see in Brazil. Standards are changed frequently, often with deplorable technical quality. The interpretation given to the norms also changes continuously, without plausible justification.
