Whistleblowing Framework

Here you will find information regarding whistleblowing reports

Note: If you are a customer of BNP Paribas S.A. Niederlassung Deutschland and wish to report any dissatisfaction or complaint, you will find the contact details of our complaint management on our website under “Service”.

BNP Paribas Group is committed to strict compliance with laws and regulations and to enforce the rules set out in the Group’s Code of Conduct.

To comply with the „Hinweisgeberschutzgesetz” and „Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz“, our whistleblower procedure accessible from our site allows you to report information about a crime or offence, a threat or harm to the public interest, a violation or an attempt to conceal a violation of applicable and binding law (regulations etc.) or a violation of the Code of Conduct.

Whistleblower reports are treated confidentially and in accordance with the applicable regulations by HR and Compliance referents.

Under local law, whistleblowers are guaranteed protection from the risk of retaliation.

Any abuse of the whistleblowing system may expose the reporting person to disciplinary sanctions or prosecution. The use of this procedure will be in good faith, so that no disciplinary sanction can be imposed on the reporting person even if the facts later prove to be incorrect or do not result in any follow-up action.
