The enrollments for PRÓ ÉTICA were extended until May 5

Program promotes the adoption by the business sector of measures to prevent and combat corruption; applications will be received until April 28


Registrations for Pro-Ética 28 are open until April 2017, a program that seeks to encourage the voluntary adoption of integrity and corruption prevention measures in the business sector. All business and simple companies, foundations, associations of entities or persons and foreign companies, regularly constituted and having headquarters, branch or representation in Brazilian territory, can participate in the initiative.

Companies interested in participating in the program must complete the System Access Request Form and follow the guidelines described on the Pró-Ética website. No fee will be charged for registration, evaluation or disclosure of companies' participation, when approved, in the annual Pro-Ethics list.


Established in 2010, Pró-Ética is the result of a combination of efforts between the public and private sectors - initially a partnership between the Comptroller General of the Union (CGU) and the Ethos Institute of Business and Social Responsibility.

The initiative seeks to encourage voluntary adoption of integrity measures by companies, through public recognition of those that, regardless of size and industry, are truly committed to preventing and fighting corruption and other types of fraud. The companies, by taking an affirmative stance towards preventing and combating illegal practices, collaborate in reducing the risks of fraud and corruption in the relations between the public and the private sector.

The Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services (MDIC), represented by the Department of Trade and Services (SCS), participates in the Pro-Ethics Management Committee. In addition to the initial partners CGU (as Executive Committee of the Committee) and the Ethos Institute, the Committee also has the participation of the National Confederation of Industries (CNI), the Brazilian Federation of Banks (Febraban), BM&F Bovespa, the Brazilian Agency for the Promotion of Exports and Investments (Apex-Brasil), Institute of Independent Auditors of Brazil (Ibracon), Brazilian Service of Support to Micro and Small Enterprises (Sebrae) and Brazilian Institute of Competition Ethics (ETCO).

The 2016 edition of Pró-Ética was attended by 195 companies of all sizes and from different branches of activity. Of the registered companies, 91 sent the evaluation questionnaire duly completed and within the stipulated deadline. After the evaluation process, 25 companies were approved and recognized as a Pro-Ethical Company 2016. The results were released during the Clean Company Law Conference in December last year.
