FGV Directive No. 19 / 2018.

Ethics and Compliance:
The enactment on August 1, 2013 of Federal Law 12,846, known as the Anti-Corruption Law, has put Brazil on the map of fighting corruption and defined new challenges for the management of Brazilian organizations. The identification, assessment and measurement of risks are today top priorities of senior management staff across all sectors. 
The law punishes companies for corrupt acts against the Brazilian or foreign public administration. This punishment goes well beyond fines and sanctions, and involves intangible values that are hard to measure, such as the image and reputation of an institution.
In order to move toward greater transparency and control against corruption, FGV created its Internal Control and Compliance System, with the objective of guaranteeing, with reasonable assurance:
•    Prevention, identification, monitoring and mitigation of potential risks;
•    Compliance with applicable laws and regulations;
•    Integrity and reliability of information;
•    Promotion of the efficiency and efficacy of operations, seeking to:
•    Achieve its strategic targets and objectives as well as its mission, vision and values;
•    Protect its assets against waste, fraud and inefficiency.

Data Protection: 
Fundação Getulio Vargas strives to contribute to the development of high-quality teaching and research in Brazil. It has operated as an important agent in several areas of social sciences through a series of innovative initiatives. Considering that Brazil’s General Data Protection Law (Law nº. 13.709/18, Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais – LGPD) was approved in 2018, FGV has been working to comply with it along with other sectoral laws on data protection already in force. 
In this sense, FGV is committed to protecting and safeguarding the rights of data subjects, as well as being an agent that stimulates discussions about the importance of privacy and data protection rights, participating in the public debate with a clear goal of contributing to create a data protection culture in Brazil.
