Doing Compliance in Brazil – A guide for multinational companies to do the right thing, by Edmo Colnagui Neves, is the first English-language work to address the most critical aspects of compliance programs in Brazil. The book successfully achieves several objectives, including serving as a tool for Brazilian compliance officers in the design, support, implementation, and maintenance of compliance programs in Brazil, mainly in multinational companies. Not infrequently, parent companies impose compliance programs and instruments from their home countries, without paying attention to the specificities and requirements of Brazilian laws.
For compliance officers and other foreign compliance professionals, Doing Compliance in Brazil is an essential work to understand the Brazilian legislation on the subject and the risks and fines that a foreign program, without the necessary adjustments, can bring to the business in Brazil.
The book compares the Brazilian compliance rules with those in force in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, showing similarities and contrasts with the most modern laws on the subject. Part 2 brings a direct and objective approach, applying well-established methods to the planning, implementation, and application of an effective and efficient compliance program in Brazilian organizations.
Finally, Doing Compliance in Brazil is the only work to provide all Brazilian compliance legislation masterfully translated into English, serving as an essential tool for the interaction between Brazilian and foreign compliance professionals. Among the relevant compliance rules and regulations translated into English, are:
- Law No. 8,429/1992 (Public Probity Law)
- Law No. 12,529/2011 (Leniency Agreements under Anti-Trust Law)
