April, May & June 2024 Roundup
 
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 April, May & June 2024.
 
It has now been two years and six months since the deadline for all Member States to have fully transposed Directive 2019/1937. All 27 countries have adopted transposition legislation.
 
No country can be yet considered fully transposed - the EU Commission started and progressed infringement proceedings against most Member States and made referrals to the European Court of Justice for transposition failure. The conformity study assessing Member States' transposition efforts is currently underway.
 
Updates:
  • New whistleblowing laws adopted in Estonia and Poland.
  • NGO sends formal complaint on transposition failures to EU Commission in Italy
  • Whistleblowing authority published first report in Ireland.
  • New analysis on whistleblowing schemes published in Denmark
Resources:
  • Latest Declaration from the Network of European Integrity and Whistleblowing Authorities (NEIWA).
  • New Blog ‘Blowing the Whistle to Protect Whistleblowers in Europe’ from Transparency International.
