Whistleblowers can monitor the progress of their Reports by accessing the Whistleblowing portal and by inserting the ID code (10 digits / numeric code) provided by the portal at the time the Report was submitted.Specific channels are provided for internal reporting (see FAQ 6 and FAQ 7), external reporting and public disclosures.
In fact, applicable regulation provides for the possibility of forwarding external reporting the Italian Anticorruption Authority (ANAC) in the following hypotheses:
(i) the internal reporting channel is not active or does not comply with legal requirements;
(ii) the internal report previously submitted by the whistleblower has not been followed-up;
(iii) the whistleblower has reasonable grounds to believe that:
- the internal report has not been effectively investigated;
- a risk of retaliation may occur;
- the alleged breach may cause an imminent or manifest danger to the public interest.
Guidelines and procedures for submitting and handling external reports are published on the ANAC website.
