WhistleblowingIT was designed by Transparency International’s greatest experts in whistleblowing.
The platform is used by ANAC, the Italian National Anti-corruption Authority, Italian Ministries and over 4,000 public entities, including Regions as well as large public and private companies.
It is the result of years of analysis of all aspects of whistleblowing. The whistleblower’s questionnaire is formulated so that qualified information is obtained.
It is subject to continuous improvements, including adapting to changes of the whistleblowing legislation and based on the feedbacks received from clients, without any additional costs.
It is easy to use, of high technical quality and low cost.
Technical and any other kind of assistance related to the use of the platform is provided promptly (without ticketing).
In March 2023, the Italian government adopted Legislative Decree 24/2023, later converted into law, which transposed the EU Directive 2019/1937. The new standard is aimed at strengthening the whistleblowing system, i.e., the set of tools through which a wide range of individuals can report the occurrence of wrongdoing likely to undermine the public interest or the integrity of the public administration or a private entity.
In practical terms, among the main changes introduced by the law is the obligation for all companies with at least 50 employees to equip themselves - by 17 December 2023 - with tools and procedures to ensure complete confidentiality for all those who wish to report wrongdoing. The decree also identifies the so-called "internal channel" as the preferred route that companies will have to adopt to structure their whistleblowing system.
