In relation to the reformalization, introduced in the criminal procedural law through the practices of the Public Prosecutor's Office, the author deals with the legal situation of this phenomenon in the Chilean system, in the context of the principle of congruence. After confirming the legal interpretation from which its use is authorized and presenting the available sentences on the matter, a critical analysis of reformalization is proposed.
