Brazil is committed to ensuring full access and transparency of information on companies punished in the terms of the Corporate Liability Law and the Public Procurement Law, through the use of the National Registry of Punished Companies (CNEP) and the Registry of Ineligible and Suspended Companies (CEIS)
Themes: Public procurement
Last updated: June 2018
Concrete: Somewhat Concrete | New: Not New | Ambitious: Not Ambitious
Both systems are operational (http://www.portaltransparencia.gov.br/cnep/; http://www.portaltransparencia.gov.br/ceis/). In the terms of Law 12.846/13, all government agencies in all levels of government are obliged to register the information on companies punished. However, Brazil has 5570 municipalities and it takes time to get all of them to comply, especially the smaller ones. In relation to the information on companies punished by agencies of the Federal Government, in July 2017 a new system was launched by the Ministry of Transparency and Comptroller General (CGU), named CGUPJ, to streamline the registration of the information.
