AMF launches whistleblower program

Jun 20, 2016

On June 20, 2016, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) launched its whistleblower program, intended to better protect individuals who report wrongdoing and enable the AMF to gather information on offences committed under the laws and regulations it administers.

Under the program, whistleblowers benefit from informer privilege as soon as a wrongdoing is reported. Investigators are trained specifically to respond to the issues faced by whistleblowers and make every effort to maintain the confidentiality of the information and the documents received, as well as the whistleblower’s identity.

Review the press release and program on the AMF's Web site.
