A New Regime For The Protection Of Whistleblowers
EU Whistleblowing Directive, effective 16 December 2019, introduces obligations to facilitate and support whistleblowing.


On 26 November 2019, the Whistleblowing Directive (the Directive) was published and will come into effect on 16 December 2019.  EU Member States have until 17 December 2021 to put in place national laws transposing the terms of the Directive.

The Directive introduces an EU wide, cross-sectoral regime for the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law through the establishment of effective, confidential and secure internal and external reporting channels and effective protection against retaliation.
