ETCO publishes guide to good Compliance practices
ETCO-Brazilian Institute of Ethics in Competition has produced a guide with guidelines to help companies implement an effective integrity program. The objective is to disseminate good compliance practices and encourage the prevention of corruption in the country.
The publication, produced with technical consultancy from Machado Meyer Sendacz Opice Advogados, takes into account the requirements set out in the decree that regulated the Anticorruption Law. According to him, companies that adopt an effective integrity program may have reduced sentences if they are involved in acts of corruption.
The printed guide is being distributed at events on the Anti-Corruption Law and to opinion leaders. A digital version can be accessed at this address.
Soon, ETCO will also release a video on the topic.

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.
