• The Government has published a consultation seeking views by 30 September 2014 on how to implement the proposed duty on prescribed persons to produce annual reports on whistleblowing.
  • The Chartered Insurance Institute has published a set of guidance on whistleblowing as part of its ongoing ethical guidance series. This includes a guidance paper for supervisors and managers on how best to respond to someone blowing the whistle to them; although aimed at CII members the practical steps suggested are useful advice for other businesses too. There is also a guidance paper for directors with responsibilities for running or overseeing their firm’s whistleblowing programme, which explains how to design and implement effective whistleblowing arrangements and provides a checklist for assessing the effectiveness of arrangements.
