If you would like to report vio­la­ti­ons by the com­pa­ny against a regu­la­ti­on men­tio­ned in § 2 HinschG, for exam­p­le tho­se con­cer­ning envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, data pro­tec­tion, traf­fic safe­ty, con­su­mer pro­tec­tion or pro­duct safe­ty, you can do so via the whist­le­b­lower por­tal. A com­ple­te list of rele­vant vio­la­ti­ons can be found under § 2 para. 1 no. 1–10 and § 2 para. 2 no. 1 and 2 HinschG.

Within the frame­work of the Sup­p­ly Chain Due Dili­gence Act, the whist­le­b­lower por­tal enables whist­le­b­lo­wers to point out human rights and envi­ron­men­tal risks as well as vio­la­ti­ons of human rights-related or envi­ron­men­tal obli­ga­ti­ons that have ari­sen due to the eco­no­mic actions of a com­pa­ny in its own busi­ness sec­tor or of a direct supplier.

The whist­le­b­lower sys­tem is of cour­se not a grie­van­ce box. Thus, dis­pu­tes bet­ween the com­pa­ny and an employee or bet­ween employees are not rele­vant in the con­text of the HinschG, as well as the Sup­p­ly Chain Due Dili­gence Act.
