External Reporting Channels in EuropeWhistleblowers are free to choose between reporting to the internal reporting channel and to the external reporting channels of the authorities.
Reporting to the internal reporting channel should always be preferred to allow the organization to quickly detect, investigate and stop breaches of law or internal policies. If a breach reported internally is not remedied, the whistleblower still has the option of contacting an external reporting channel.
