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.
