According to British Standards Institution (BSI) there is increasing emphasis on the role that whistleblowing plays “both as an instrument of good governance and a manifestation of a more open culture.”
Consquently, BSI has published a code of practice for whistleblowing arrangements at work. The code marks the ten-year annivesary of the Public Interest Disclosure Act which introduced legal protection for “whistleblowing” employees who uncover criminal behaviour or dangerous practices at work.
The new code sets out good practice for the introduction, revision, operation and review of effective whistleblowing arrangements in all types of organisation across the private, public and voluntary sectors.
