EU Whistleblower Protection Directive
How Can NAVEX Help You Comply?
What is the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive?
Directive (EU) 2019/1937 (commonly referred to as the “EU Whistleblower Protection Directive”) was adopted by the European Council in 2019. It aims to strengthen protections for people who report breaches of EU law, create safer, better-defined reporting channels across all EU member states, and move member states towards a unified legal framework.
The Directive has implications for hundreds of thousands of organisations within the EU – and beyond. December 2021 marked the deadline for member states to enact national law satisfying the requirements of the Directive for organisations of 250 people or more, leaving two further years for smaller organisations of 50 or more people. Laws will vary by country, as the Directive establishes minimum standards, which will be transposed to national law in each member state.
