About the Whistleblowing Meter:
In April 2019, the European Parliament adopted a game-changing Directive designed to protect whistleblowers across Europe. After the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament approved the new law, it came into force on 16 December 2019. Directive (EU) 2019/1937 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law otherwise known as the 'EU Directive on Whistleblowing' must be transposed into the national law by the 27 EU Member States by the 17th of December 2021.
The EU Whistleblowing Meter was created by the Whistleblowing International Network to track the progress of transposition of the EU Directive on Whistleblowing across all 27 Member States over the next 18 months. It will be updated as and when we are made aware of any information through our voluntary team of country editors and other relevant sources.
About the Whistleblowing International Network:
The Whistleblowing International Network (WIN) is an international charity based in Scotland. WIN’s mission is to strengthen the capacity of civil society to protect public interest whistleblowers worldwide, to support the work of civil society in turning legal rights into active protection for whistleblowers, and to assist in ensuring that whistleblowing disclosures achieve lasting change in the public interest.
