14 . August . 2018

The Municipality of Rio de Janeiro, on 05.18.17, has published the Decree no. 43.189/17 which required its contractors to present all invoices referring to inputs and equipment used in engineering works and services provided to that entity. In sponsoring the cause brought by the Association of Engineering Companies of Rio de Janeiro – AEERJ – the SRA has demonstrated that the aforementioned Decree violated Law 8.666/93. As a result, the Court of Justice of the state of Rio de Janeiro recognized the illegality and decided, in an injunction, to suspend the effects of Decree 43.189/17.
