Are you a company with more than 50 employees, a local authority, a school or a publicly funded organisation and want to be sure you're meeting all the requirements of the new EU directive? FaceUp has you covered. We'll also monitor all risks and deadlines for you.
✔️ Whistleblowers can create reports through the FaceUp website, your own website, intranet or even through our mobile app.
✔️ They'll receive access according to your organisational structure and type of report. We'll provide a contract template to the assignees and are happy to provide training. We can also offer external counsel services.
✔️ Whistleblowers can communicate anonymously through FaceUp which ultimately is the best way to protect them from retaliation.
✔️ We automatically keep track of all deadlines, send you prompt smart notifications, and simplify all matters relating to the report.
✔️ The FaceUp administration area serves as an encrypted database of reports from all your communication channels. You can add comments, upload attachments, and save notes.
✔️ With FaceUp, the whistleblower can not only send text reports but also record anonymised voice messages.
✔️ Only designated assignees will have access to reports. Neither FaceUp nor any third party have access to them.
✔️ You can make FaceUp available to anyone you wish. This can be through a password, a direct link, QR code or your website.
✔️ The whistleblower can see the status of their report by entering a unique code on the website. They can also receive a notification that their report has successfully reached the system.
✔️ Through FaceUp you can keep the whistleblower informed of everything they need to know. Their identity is protected during all communications, for as long as they wish it to be.
✔️ FaceUp offers the combination of maintaining the whistleblower's anonymity and the option of a follow up conversation. You can ask for further information and evaluate the legitimacy of the report.
✔️ We'll automatically create a profile for your organisation so all the important information is available online. You can easily set up remote access yourself, as well as for the reporting channel.
✔️ In the FaceUp administration area there are free legal document templates for you to use. We can also put you in contact with approved partners who can create tailored versions for you.
✔️ We'll set up your system in such a way that makes it not only easier, but also safer for whistleblowers to report directly to you. Over 10,000 reports have already been submitted through us.
✔️ You can put your trust in FaceUp. We have been running for over 5 years, are trusted by 2,700 organisations on 4 continents and have an in-house team of experienced developers working on our platform.
✔️ Both FaceUp and our partners can assist with training. You can find a free record template in the administration area.
✔️ We process personal data in full compliance with GDPR regulations. We also have a valid ISO 27001 certificate.

The European Parliament and European Council approved a directive protecting those who report breaches of EU law, known as the "Whistleblowing Directive".
17 December 2021
The European Directive guaranteeing the protection of whistleblowers and prohibiting any form of retaliation comes into force. Affected organisations should have an internal whistleblowing system in place.
EU countries gradually introduce laws which implement the requirements of the Directive. All private companies with more than 50 employees and autonomous areas of more than 5,000 inhabitants must implement a reporting channel.
