2021: Submission on the General Scheme of the Protected Disclosures Amendment Bill

Transparency International Ireland shared its views with Joint Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach on the General Scheme of the Protected Disclosures Amendment Bill 2021, which aims to transpose Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and Council on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (EU Whistleblowing Directive) into Irish Law.

The submission largely draws from both TI Ireland’s and the Transparency Legal Advice Centre’s (TLAC) analysis and experience of working with whistleblowers and other disclosers of wrongdoing since 2010. It also reflects TI Ireland’s submission in response to the July 2020 public consultation on the transposition of the EU Whistleblowing Directive.
