Belgium – 21 December 2022 – ComplyLogs’ IntegrityLog supports the Belgian implementation of the European Union (EU) Whistleblower Directive. The online tool can automate whistleblowing for companies in a safe and anonymous way to guarantee protection for whistleblowers.
On 15 December 2022, the Belgian law implementing the EU Whistleblower Directive was published in the Official Gazette (Belgisch Staatsblad/Moniteur belge) and will enter into force on 15 February 20231, changing the way whistleblowers are protected. The new law includes the obligation for companies of the private sector with at least 50 employees, to implement a whistleblowing system, including internal and external reporting channels.
ComplyLog welcomes this adoption and advocates for other EU Member States to implement the Directive into their national systems as well as strengthening the law beyond its requirements to provide full protections for whistleblowers.
IntegrityLog, a ComplyLog online reporting portal for whistleblowing, supports companies by ensuring confidentiality and anonymity in compliance with best practices, including GDPR for data processing. Companies using IntegrityLog can view the progress of all their reports at a glance via the intuitive IntegrityLog dashboard, as well as receiving notifications when deadlines are approaching, as required by the new EU legislation on whistleblowing, ensuring compliance at all times.
Pierre-Edouard Borderie, Head of Euronext Corporate Services, said: “As the EU Whistleblowing Directive is being implemented in most European countries, organisations need to build infrastructure to facilitate the integration of this new regulation. Companies must ensure that a secure channel for receiving whistleblowers’ reports is put in place. IntegrityLog’s user-friendly, efficient digital system can play a pivotal role in companies’ compliance with the regulation, meeting all security and data protection procedures as well as compliance needs.”
