Concerned with the training and retraining of company executives, Aegea held, last Friday (30), in São Paulo, the 2019 edition of the Regulation Seminar, focusing on regulation and highlighting the current discussion of the regulatory framework of the sector.

Throughout the day, three lectures were held with specialists from the infrastructure sector, addressing different points of regulation and modeling of concession contracts for basic sanitation services.

This was an important occasion to bring together the Group’s executives, who work in 49 cities in the country, at a time of professional updating and exchange of experiences regarding the management of public water and sewage treatment services.

The first panel, given by the lawyer Patrícia Pessoa, focused on trends and tools for Regulatory Impact Analysis (AIR), regarding the mapping of costs, risks and actors involved in the conclusion of public administration contracts, with provisions provided for in the Law of Introduction to Standards of Brazilian Law (LINDB, 2018).

Lawyer Vera Monteiro, at the event, exposed the debate on the negotiation of physical goals in concession contracts signed with the Granting Authority, following new trends in the concession of public services to the detriment of financial goals that have become obsolete in the market.

Finally, economist Frederico Turolla dealt with the details of PL 3,189 / 2019, which was approved by the National Congress. The project aims to reform the regulatory framework for sanitation, seeking to improve legal security and competitiveness levels in the sector, becoming a major investment attraction for the evolution of water and sewage coverage rates and improvement of services provided to citizens.
