TUAC Assessment

The Brazilian NCP's web site is comprehensive providing access to the OECD Guidelines (Portuguese and English) as well as NCP procedures, NCP Initial Assessments and Final Statements, and NCP Annual Reports to the OECD. Its published procedures, however, are out of line with the OECD Guidelines with regard to parallel legal proceedings and the imposition of a 12-month time for the filing of cases.
