Promoting an open and legally compliant culture

The EU Whistleblowing Directive (2019/1937) requires companies and organisations with 50 or more employees and municipalities with 10,000 or more inhabitants to install a professional and GDPR-compliant whistleblowing system.

This is designed to raise the protection of whistleblowers to a uniform level across the EU. The deadline for installing a whistleblower system varies according to the size of the company/organisation. However, there are many good reasons not to wait – it will help promote an open and legally compliant culture, build transparency and strengthen trust in your company. The EQS Integrity Line whistleblowing hotline means you can offer your employees a secure channel to raise any issues they observe internally.
