What is it about?

The EU Whistleblower Directive

Start date: December 17, 2021

Whistleblower protection system

Companies and federal, state, local governments (public sector legal entities)

Initially, the directive will be obligatory for companies with 250 employees or more. Starting in 2023 at the latest, it will additionally be mandated for medium-sized businesses employing 50 people or more. Business owners are therefore advised to start preparing their companies for the new standards in good time and thus build an exemplary compliance culture.

Why you should use WHISPER


With WHISPER, you meet all legal requirements. EU states must integrate the directive into national law by December 17, 2021, by which time companies must have implemented its measures into their daily practices.


Directors, employees and companies will be protected from fines or imprisonment. Proactive action against violations is thus encouraged.


WHISPER can protect you from serious reputational damage caused by media scandals. Our whistleblower platform enables you to dig up potential issues internally, before anything goes public.


External reporting channels, such as authorities or the media, will only be notified if you do not use an internal reporting system, or do not take appropriate, timely action. With WHISPER, risks can be identified in good time.


With WHISPER, you proactively create a modern speak-up culture. WHISPER guarantees anonymity, so employees can make a report without the fear of being treated disadvantageously as a consequence. In this way, everyone has a chance to speak up without worry.
