What is Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing emerges as a crucial cornerstone of corporate compliance, enabling employees or external parties such as suppliers or customers to confidentially and protectedly report any illicit behaviors within the scope of business activities.

The term "whistleblower," metaphorically represents the role of a referee or police officer assumed by someone drawing attention to prohibited activities, often illegal, with the goal of stopping them. The whistleblower is a figure within a company, whether public or private, who decides to report wrongdoing, fraud, or a hazard identified during their work. In the case of a customer, this report may arise from their experience with the company.

In summary, whistleblowing is the practice of reporting violations of laws or regulations, crimes, corruption, fraud, and situations endangering public health and safety.
