With active participation in the organization since its creation in 1953, the TCU is currently a member of 19 organs of the institution.
The court has been playing a key role in several working groups of the entity, contributing to the development of numerous international public goods that have benefited SAIs around the world. Examples of the TCU’s work include the Biodiversity Audit Guideline (Working Group on Environmental Auditing – WGEA) and the IT Governance Guideline (Working Group on IT Auditing).
In 2005, the TCU assumed its first leadership position at INTOSAI, as chair of the Performance Audit Subcommittee (PAS). In 2016, it became chair of the entity’s Professional Standards Committee (PSC), one of the organization’s three strategic committees. Along with the chairs of the other two committees, South Africa and India, Brazil holds an important leadership position in INTOSAI and actively contributes to achieving the organization’s strategic objectives.
