In September 2017, CADE’s General Superintendence launched a guidance document regarding dawn raids conducted by the authority. The document was elaborated based on CADE’s best practices and intends to give transparency to the activities of the institution. Although it is non-binding, the document “Dawn Raids Proceedings: General Information about Operationalization” aims to keep track of the institutional memory and to serve as a reference to public servants during the proceedings related to this important activity in the implementation of competition policy and defense, consolidating CADE’s experience on this matter.
