Ethics and Transparency

We have mechanisms to monitor compliance with our Code of Ethics and integrity procedures to ensure corporate dignity, transparency and business ethics. Therefore, the Compliance Program calls for several actions, including:

The Compliance Program was approved by the senior management and the Compliance department reports directly to the Audit Committee, which holds two seats in the Board of Directors. When onboarded, CSN’s new hires receive training on the Code of Ethics and the Compliance Policy, which are applicable to all, including the Executive Officers, Directors and Fiscal Council Members. At the onboarding session, all new employees must be informed of and accept CSN’s Code of Ethics and Anti-Corruption Policy. Every month we circulate newsletters on good compliance practices, and maintain an annual training cycle on the topic, besides organizing the “Compliance Day”, a day dedicated to aligning, engage and clear doubts on the topic. The Code of Ethics was revised in 2016 to include principles laid down in the Anti-Corruption Law (12,846/13). It is worth noting that our agréments with third parties set forth clauses to ensure full compliance with anti-corruption laws enforced in the countries where we do business.

Additionally, we organize recurring campaigns to clarify doubts and raise awareness about the Whistleblower Channel over training and newsletters. This trust stimulates the use of the Channel, strengthening our commitment to compliance practices. Breaches to the Code of Ethics and to other CSN rules, whether by direct or indirect employees, managers, representatives, suppliers or service providers shall incur in disciplinary measures.
