Central vs. local intake and case management under the EU Whistleblowing Directive

Resource Ethics and Compliance

Since the publication of the EU Whistleblowing Directive in 2019, the question of central versus local case intake and case management has been interpreted, debated, questioned, and resisted more than any other requirement. In a series of letters to the European business community, the EU Commission and Expert Group have made their stance clear — businesses subject to the requirements of the Whistleblowing Directive must make local reporting channels available and be able to investigate cases locally. 


While implementing a local reporting channel for every subsidiary and location presents a challenge, the lift does not need to be a heavy one, and there are advantages to compliance. Download this white paper to learn the specific intake and case management requirements for local subsidiaries and offices across Europe, plus how to:

  • Make use of parent-level investigative functions while still complying with the local intake requirement
  • Compliantly store whistleblowing data at the parent level
  • Turn the local case intake and management requirement to your company’s advantage
