Overview (Program Summary)

The EU Whistleblower Directive, which is intended to provide whistleblowers with greater protection, sets out a legal framework of minimum standards that have to be transposed by the EU member states into national legislation.

The Belgian law transposing the Directive is expected by mid-July 2022. During their presentation, the speakers will take a look at this new legal framework and explain the content of the Directive and the Belgian draft law. They will provide a general overview and discuss the impact and the various obligations it imposes on companies.

They will also address various questions and topics, such as:

  • which type of internal reporting channel(s) should/can be established
  • how should whistleblowing reports be processed and followed up
  • how to guarantee the impartiality of the person or department competent for the follow-up and investigation of the reports
  • what is the scope of the protection of whistleblowers
  • how can the confidentiality of the identity of a whistleblower be safeguarded
  • which sanction can be imposed in case of non-compliance

Finally, the speakers will underline why it is important for companies to be aware of their obligations under this new legislation and take the necessary steps for compliance. At the end of the presentation, there will be time for Q&A.
