WORKSHOP C – Risk Assessment Workshop

A compliance program is useless without a well-done risk assessment. Risk assessment is considered one of the basic pillars of a compliance program. This assessment should be conducted and reviewed regularly and be based on risks associated with bribery and corruption practices, as well as other existing policies, such as conflict of interest, lobbying, donations, business courtesies, government interaction, etc. By definition, the assessment should cover all the commercial and operational aspects of a business, considering the ecosystem in which it operates, the business size, the level of commitment of partners, third parties, and suppliers, as well as other relevant circumstances. Risk assessment should measure the likelihood and severity of possible violations and should identify mitigation actions, including new policies and procedures. This workshop will take a practical approach to this highly relevant topic and will provide Templates, and other supporting documents, to be customized and integrated into the program.

As a result of the instability that has recently affected investor confidence in Brazil, especially in listed mixed ownership companies, it was necessary to find ways of reducing uncertainty about management, reporting, and relations with private companies. Accordingly, both BM&FBOVESPA - B3, with its voluntary State-Owned Enterprise Governance Highlight Program, and Law 13303/2016 can be considered landmarks of a new management model for Brazilian government-owned and mixed ownership companies. In the context of federal, state, and municipal governments, as well as political parties, there has been a lot of discussion about the implementation of codes of conduct and a compliance program to minimize the possibility of behavioral and ethical deviations. In this panel, renowned professionals will discuss the topic and suggest practical actions to improve and enhance processes for government-owned companies and entities.

In this context, proper handling of whistle-blowing and conduct of an internal investigation following international best practices is fundamental to a successful compliance program.

Thirdly, because companies are beginning to value the legal department as a business strategy partner.

Brazil is currently stunned watching the revelations in the media about the investigations of the so-called Operation Car Wash.

Various countries, including the United States, with the Foreign Corruption Practice Act, and the United Kingdom, with the British Bribery Act, have already strict legislation specifically aimed at corruption. In Brazil, Law 12846 of 2013, as well as the concept of plea bargain, have the potential to revolutionize the entire construction and infrastructure sector and even the country. In this workshop, renowned professionals will discuss best practices for the sector and how companies can be better prepared to face challenges with the public sector.
