Campinas receives Compliance Day

Event that brings knowledge about the Anti-Corruption Law to the interior of the country was supported by ETCO

The city of Campinas, the second largest in São Paulo, received the Compliance Day on August 26th. The event, which takes lectures on the topic for cities outside the Rio-São Paulo axis, was held by Legal Ethics Compliance (LEC) and it was supported by ETCO-Brazilian Institute of Competition Ethics.

The lectures addressed topics such as the need to adapt compliance programs to Law 12.846 / 2013, known as the Anti-Corruption Law, the role of information security and the criminal risks involved in corrupt practices. “Many companies think that, because they do not have a direct commercial relationship with the government, they are free from risk,” says Alessandra Gonsales, a partner at the law firm WFaria and LEC. "This is a mistake, as every business has some kind of relationship with the public authorities."

Among the speakers at the Compliance Day in Campinas were representatives of companies, such as Harold Artur Bouillon, director of compliance at Bosch, and lawyers specialized in the subject, such as Emerson Siécola de Mello and Carlo Huberth Luchione. The public was composed of 30 people, mostly executives from the legal and compliance areas of companies in the region.

The next Compliance Day will be in Belo Horizonte (MG), on October 8th. Information and registration this site.

Compliance Investigations Workshop

Legal Ethics Compliance (LEC) will hold the Compliance Investigations Workshop in Rio de Janeiro on September 15th and 16th.

With the strengthening of the Compliance programs and the maturing of the compliance position in companies, the topic “Internal Investigations” assumes a fundamental importance, as it can not only mean compliance with the terms of the new anti-corruption law, but can avoid large fines by the control bodies , whether due to local law or international anti-corruption laws.

Date: September 15th and 16th

Location: Rio de Janeiro

Members and partners of the ETCO institute have a special discount on the registration fee for the Compliance Investigations Workshop, 15% for members and 5% for ETCO nominees.
