This is the monthly roundup of updates provided by the EU Whistleblowing Monitor team of country editors detailing national developments in the transposition of the EU Directive on Whistleblowing during August 2022.
As of 01 September, it has been 9 months since the 17 December 2021 deadline for all Member States to have fully transposed Directive 2019/1937.
16 countries are still listed as delayed - 1 Member State is still listed as not started (Hungary).
No country can be yet considered fully transposed - the EU Commission started infringement proceedings against 26 states.
**After Romania’s legislation has been sent back to Parliament for revision, now only 10 Member States have adopted Transposition Laws:
Transposition Bills have been issued in a further 10 countries:
- Germany: Government approves draft whistleblowing law
- Slovakia: Whistleblower protection reform proposes landmark penalties
A coalition of NGOs have published 10 recommendations to improve draft transposition law in Spain.
