Group Whistleblowing framework
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.
The whistleblowing system, accessible from this page, allows you to report information about a crime or an offence, a threat or harm to the public interest, a violation or an attempt to conceal a violation of applicable and binding law (laws, regulations, etc.) or a breach of the Group's Code of Conduct.
Whistleblowing reports are handled by independent experts in a confidential manner and in accordance with the regulations in force.
Whistleblowers are granted protection against the risk of retaliation provided by local applicable law.
Any abuse of the whistleblowing system may expose the reporting person to disciplinary sanctions or prosecution.
The BNP Paribas Group collects and processes personal information and data about you as part of the collection and processing of your alert. For more information, you can consult our personal data protection notice for external third parties.
