Anatel may be required to disclose Fust and Fistel spending statements in real time

The bill was presented by Congressman Aureo (SD-RJ) and amends the General Telecommunications Law (LGT – Law 9.472 / 97). Under the proposal, the agency will have to disclose revenue and expenditure data. Regarding the expenses, you will have to identify the destination given to the resources, mentioning the legal basis.

Aureo explains that the goal is to give more transparency to the collection and use of funds from both funds. He cited that an audit by the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU), performed in 2016, pointed out several problems in the management of resources, such as lack of monitoring in the application of values ??and use other than required by law.

Fistel defrays Anatel’s inspection expenses on telecommunications services. Fust is used to cover expenses with the universalization of telecommunication services. The funds from both funds are charged to the revenues of telephone operators, which pass the costs to the telephone bills.

Procedure

Bill 8943/17 is being finalized and will be reviewed by the Consumer Protection Committees; Science and Technology, Communication and Informatics; and Constitution and Justice and Citizenship. With information from Agência Câmara.
