This is the section of the FSMA website dealing with whistleblowers’ reports. A whistleblower is a person employed in the financial sector who observes an infringement(s) against the financial legislation which the FSMA is responsible for enforcing, and reports the infringement(s) in question to the FSMA.
The FSMA guarantees that the whistleblower’s identity will be kept secret. Reports can also be made anonymously. The law protects persons who in good faith report an infringement to the FSMA.
Whistleblowers’ reports should enable the FSMA to investigate the facts in question. Therefore, the facts need to be described with sufficient precision and detail. Where possible, the facts should also be supported with documentary evidence.
Whistleblowers’ reports can be made using various channels: via the Whistleblowers’ Point of contact on this website, by phone, in writing or at a face-to-face meeting.
Below, we have provided more detailed explanations and instructions regarding whistleblowers’ reports.
