The Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions of MERCOSUL Countries and Associated (EFSUL), currently composed by SAIs of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela, emerged because of the common interest in monitor the resulting acts of the integration of countries by the Treaty of Asunción, signed in 1991, as well as to share information and experiences of the institutions.

Besides, EFSUL defines the actions about the external control of the region through an internal body called Joint Commission for Technical, Scientific and Cultural Cooperation.

Among other activities carried out by the Organization in recent years, special mention should be made of audits into the Mercosur information network, customs stations, and budget transfers to the Mercosur Administrative Secretariat, as well as environmental audits.
