Management of Internal Controls
We seek to ensure, in our companies, a strengthened and constantly improving control environment in accordance with internal and external regulatory aspects.
Because we trade in American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), we are subjected to regulation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Our controls must be SOX-certificated (Sarbanes-Oxley Act), which means we have to assess the existing internal controls and submit this analysis to appraisal by independent auditors. Therefore, we have to file our 20-F Form with the SEC on a yearly basis, containing the management statement on the internal controls of our companies.
