June & July 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 June and July 2023.
It has been over one year and seven months since the deadline for all Member States to have fully transposed Directive 2019/1937.
Two countries are still listed as delayed – no countries are now listed as not started.
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.
· Whistleblowing laws adopted Slovakia and Czechia
· New Whistleblowing rules introduced in Italy
· New whistleblowing draft laws issued in Poland
· Ireland amends its transposition legislation
· Concerns raised for proposed whistleblowing rules in Bulgaria
· Guest blog: Hungary has finally started transposing the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive
· Briefing: ‘Protecting whistle-blowers in the EU’ European Parliamentary Research Service
Twenty-five Member States have now adopted Transposition Laws and Transposition Bills have been issued in at least two countries.
