BCB published Circular No. 4.032 that sets out the initial governance framework for implementation of open banking in Brazil. The circular went into effect on the date of its publication. The circular states that the initial governance framework will consist of three levels: strategic, administrative, and technical. This initial governance framework must be formalized by July 15, 2020, with the provision for replacement by a definitive governance framework until the implementation of the last stage of Open Banking, on October 25, 2021.
The circular highlights that the strategic level functions will be performed by the "Deliberative Council." The main functions of the Council will be to define the internal rules of the governance framework, deliberate on convention of the participating institutions, define guidelines for the Secretariat and Technical Groups, and decide on the other issues necessary for implementation of open banking in the country. The circular also notes that duties at the administrative level will be exercised by the Secretariat. These duties involve organization and coordination of work plans as well as the proposition, execution, and management of budget, in addition to several other activities of an administrative nature. At the technical level, the Technical Groups will be responsible for preparation of studies and technical proposals for implementation of open banking, according to the work plans approved by the Deliberative Council. The circular also contains rules on composition of the Deliberative Council, the Secretariat, and the Technical Groups.
