Know the Pillars of the Integrity Program
We have ten pillars guiding our actions, rules and internal guidelines to ensure integrity in our relationship.
Governance and culture
Higher Management’s commitment is vital to the success of the Integrity Program.
Control and integrity risk assessment
This pillar is guided by the integrity risk and compliance management. It is focused on the non-compliance to the applicable legal and regulatory obligations, such as external rules, Code of Conduct and Ethics and internal policies.
Code of Conduct and Policies
In order to formalize governance and ensure the continuity of our business within ethical and sustainable standards, Inter has a Code of Conduct and Ethics and a Normative System that governs and directs the expected conduct and internal processes.
Communication and training
Training programs are crucial to foster a culture of integrity, allowing the chaining and multiplication of knowledge.
Reporting on the Ethics Channel is one of the main mechanisms for identifying non-compliance with the Code of Conduct and Ethics. Reporting inappropriate conduct and violations to the Code is a duty of all employees, suppliers, business partners and third parties.
Third-Party Due Diligence
Aiming at knowing and evaluating the profile of the companies that Inter and its subsidiaries intend to execute agreements with the Integrity Due Diligence (DDI) is carried out, prior to the execution, so as to assess the risk of reputation, corruption and misconduct.
Monitoring and test
The Compliance team is responsible for the constant monitoring of Inter’s Integrity Program, in order to ensure effectiveness thereof.
The procedure aims at investigating irregularities in internal processes and reports of fraud, corruption, conflicts of interest and other risks to Inter’s reputation, image and integrity.
Management of non-conformities
Monitoring and dealing with non-conformities, in order to carry out corrective measures that mitigate and correct the identified issues.
We have well-defined institutional reporting practices, which aim at ensuring proper management and governance of issues related to legal compliance and corporate integrity.

Relationships with Suppliers
To us, partnerships with suppliers, third-parties and business partners is of utmost importance, as it is also by such means that we meet our purpose of simplifying people’s lives.
Our Supplier Relationship Policy, along with the Code of Conduct and Ethics, establish the ethical standards of governance and objectively translate the rules and guidelines that underlie our relationship with suppliers and service providers.Access relationship policy
Inter has zero tolerance with any kind of corruption. To ensure our employees follow us in this policy, we have many mechanisms in our Integrity Program to instruct them.
The Anticorruption Policy is one of the main internal documents on this matter. It is the document Inter uses to highlight its commitment to ensure its relationships are based on ethics and integrity.
Every year our employees are trained on this policy — it is necessary. They learn about the Code of Conduct and Ethics, anticorruption and conflict of interests.
