Competent authority for the protection of whistleblowers

We manage the external channel and provide support and accompaniment to people who, for reporting (internally or externally) or publicly disclosing a breach, can suffer reprisals. We can adopt precautionary measures and impose sanctions and we work to normalize the fact of reporting and to promote a culture favorable to the alert.

If you find yourself in a situation like the one described and want to get in touch with us, you can send an email to autoritatproteccio@antifrau.cat

What must be reported to Anti-Fraud?

Subjects that have an internal information system, in the public or private sector, in compliance with legal obligations or by their own decision, and that are included in the area of competence of the Anti-Fraud Office of Catalonia, they must notify (art. 8.3 of Law 2/2023, of February 20):

  • The appointment and termination of the natural person individually designated as responsible for the internal information system
  • Or, if applicable, the appointment and dismissal of the people who make up the collegiate body responsible for the internal information system

They should take into account that:

  • The communication must be made within ten working days following the appointment or termination
  • In the case of termination, the reasons that justified it must be specified

How should communication be done?
