How to blow the whistle

Your whistleblower report may relate to anyone working or having worked at a financial institution, irrespective of their position or place in the organisation.

To file a report, contact the Desk by:

If you prefer not to use any of these options, call us to make an appointment with one of our officers and discuss your situation. 

The information we need
To assess your report, we need the following details:

  • The institution concerned.
  • The specific facts of which you are aware.
  • Whenand where these facts occurred.
  • The names of the individuals involved in these facts.  

We welcome every bit of whistleblower information you can provide, as seemingly insignificant details may give us valuable clues of potential wrongdoing. We do not expect you to provide conclusive evidence about the suspected wrongdoing.

We register your contact details
The DNB Whistleblowing Desk will register your name and contact details when you file a report, as they are important in case we decide to perform a follow-up examination. We will treat your personal data confidentially, unless we are under a statutory obligation to disclose them, in which case we will inform you in advance. In spite of our confidential treatment, it cannot be excluded that an institution traces you once it becomes aware that a report of potential wrongdoing has been filed. 

You may also file your whistleblower report anonymously, provided you substantiate it with supporting evidence sufficient to form a basis for our follow-up examination. Please keep in mind that anonymous reports may also be traced back to you. For more information about filing a report anonymously and your legal position when you report an instance of wrongdoing, check. You can directly file an anonymous report to the police through the website of Meld Misdaad Anoniem.
