EU Directive on Whistleblowing
16 Dec 2019 - Present

In 2019 the European Union adopted a far-reaching Directive on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law.

The ‘EU Directive on Whistleblowing’ entered into force on the 16th of December 2019 and each of the 27 EU Member States have until the 17th of December 2021 to transpose its provisions into their national legal and institutional systems.

The EU Whistleblowing Meter was created by the Whistleblowing International Network to track the progress of transposition across all 27 Member States.

Parliamentary assembly discusses preparatory work to transpose EU Directive on Whistleblowing

After much delay, discussions on the preparatory work for a draft law to implement the EU Directive on Whistleblowing into Italian law are now underway in the parliamentary assembly. Responsibility to for transposition of the Directive, which must take place before the 17 December 2021 is understood to be shared between both the Ministry of Justice and the Department for European Policies within the Prime Minister’s office. Proposed amendments to the draft legislation made by the Parliamentary Commission can be read here. Once approved, the law will officially appoint these Ministries and implementation of the Directive can commence.
