Based on CMN Resolution 2,554/1998, published by the Central Bank of Brazil, Banpará defines Internal Controls as a systematic process, conducted by the board of directors, executive board and employees, established to provide reasonable security for achieving the goals related to its operations, disclosure and compliance, such as:

  • • Effectiveness and efficiency of operations;
  • • Reliability of financial reports;
  • • Compliance with rules and regulations.

The Bank‘s Internal Control System is segmented based on the main interrelated elements of the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO), namely:

  • Internal Environment
  • Setting of Goals
  • Identification of Events
  • Risk Assessment
  • Response to Risk
  • Control Activities
  • Information and Communications
  • Monitoring

The Bank uses the Control and Risk Self-Assessment (CRSA) methodology, which includes the assessment of risks and threats to business goals; the identification of weaknesses and residual risks and the improvement of controls.
