Designed according to international practice ISO 37002 and in compliance with national regulations1, the Service is ISO 9001 certified and supported by specific software (auditing & compliance) for the management of whistleblowings and related activities. The Service provides multiple scalable and integrated possibilities, supported by specifically trained staff:

  2. Toll-free number
  3. Physical mail (PO BOX)
  4. Dedicated page (landing page)
  5. Generic page (home page)

How it works

The whistleblowing is handled by qualified internal Audit People staff, so that it can be customised and carried out according to the whistleblower’s indications. In addition, specific actions can be defined with the client company (e.g. the preparation of procedures concerning recipients and levels of confidentiality, support in the management of whistleblowings up to legal advice). The decisive aspect is that “we use qualified consultants”.
